PieceWork March/April 2016
As you know, PieceWork often includes articles and projects on everyday textiles. You will find that the same is true for the March/April 2016 issue as well. Kathy Augustine writes: “Embroidery, although not a survival skill, helped women carve a little bit of civilization out of a harsh environment.”
You’ll also discover the beautiful needlework that was produced by Gustave Stickley’s Craftsman Company and embroidered huck tea towels. There are 9 projects to knit, crochet, and embroider for your family and home. And there’s much more!
Don’t forget that April 1, 2016 is the deadline for PieceWork’s 2016 Miniatures Contest. Five category winners receive needlework products from our generous sponsors! Visit www.needleworktraditions.com/needlework-contest for complete information, including a link to the 2016 Miniatures Rules and Entry Form to print and Online Entry Form. We are eager to see your creations!
