Learn to do hand quilting in just one day-- and then practice for the rest of your life

£9.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

The art of hand quilting endures because nothing can duplicate the look of fine hand quilting. This book, originally published in 1996, quickly became the must-have book for every quilter who wanted to learn tips and techniques for those times when they wanted to quilt their finest patchwork by hand. Nancy Brenan Daniel, 12 years later, has revised and updated the material, creating another book that every quilter should have in his or her library. Like the original, there are sections on batting, marking tools, frames and hoops, thimbles, thread, quilting stencils, quilting patterns, posture, lighting, mental attitude, no-stress hand quilting, preparing the fabric, layering, knots, the dimple style stitch and a question-and-answer section on how to improve your quilting stitch. Also in this updated version of the book are five new practice pieces as well as three of her best pieces from the original book, including the famous cover project: Welcome Wall Quilt With Wheat and Pineapple.

Oxfam Bookshop St Albans

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller, but it doesn't stop there. We sell a great range of donated music as well. Whether it's vintage LPs or the latest modern fiction you want, we're well worth a look! We also sell greetings cards for every occasion. And of course we have some great stock for sale on Oxfam's Online Shop, too. Call us to find out more.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
