PieceWork September/October 2016

PieceWork’s annual nod to the literary world celebrates the clandestine world of the mystery genre. This issue features behind-the-scenes stories on admired authors Ngaio Marsh and Patricia Moyes, as well as a salute to our much-loved literary heroines. You will find nine projects including a Knitting Bag inspired by sleuth Nancy Drew, Pippi’s Long Stockings and a delightful Regency-era doll dress fashioned after those of the Jane Austen period. Readers also get a glimpse into the world of beloved children’s author Jan Brett and the pattern to re-create the mittens from her beloved classic The Mitten, an adaptation of a classic Ukrainian folktale. And don’t forget to check out the winners of this year’s PieceWork Miniatures Contest!
