Tell Us a Story: Literature and Needlework

It’s no mystery—the PieceWork editorial staff adores books—and we know you, our readers, do too! Our love for literature and needlework go hand in hand. It’s a union celebrated by authors far and wide. With this in mind, we devote the September/October 2018 issue to these twin passions. Help us uncover the stitches in the stories!

Scan your bookshelves for that long-lost literary friend who spurred you to knit lace, tat edgings, crochet doilies, and embroider pillowcases. We bet it’s a fascinating tale! The September/October 2018 issue of PieceWork wants to share your discoveries in words and thread.

 Literature and Needlework

Kathy Augustine’s “Nancy’s Knitting Bag to Knit,” reminiscent of those popular in the 1930s, will hold all of your knitting paraphernalia and a paperback mystery—in style! Kathy’s bag is the companion project for her article on knitting in the Nancy Drew mysteries in the September/October 2016 issue of PieceWork.

Here’s the information for the September/October 2018 issue. We’re so looking forward to your submissions! If you have any questions, please email [email protected].

September/October 2018—STITCHES AND STORIES

You’d think that once you’ve explored Miss Marple, Madame DeFarge, and perhaps Jane Austen, you’d be finished with finding connections in literature to the needlecrafts we love so much. Not so! Every year that we publish our special—and especially popular—literature issue, new revelations come to light. Have you unearthed any gems? Created special projects based on your favorite books?
Proposal deadline: January 5, 2018
