Welcome to the private classroom of quilting star Lisa Bongean of Primitive Gatherings! Ditch the trial-and-error and learn from Lisa’s decades of experience how she creates her exquisite stitcheries step by step: wool appliqué, embroidery stitches, and much more. Filled with close-up photos of Lisa's hands working her magic, this book will show you how to master each technique down to the tiniest detail.
Start with Lisa’s fabric tips; then move on to her favorite tools, templates, threads, and needles. How does she create her slim vines, pretty pennies, and flower appliqués? It’s all here, along with a dozen embroidery stitches in photos so clear, you can’t go wrong. Lisa also shares five sweet projects to make yourself, rounding out this jampacked volume that will teach stitchers how to sew more accurately, more confidently, and more beautifully than ever before.
