PieceWork September/October 2014

This fourth special issue of PieceWork combines literature and needlework!

In the previous issues (September/October 2010, 2011, and 2012), we have looked at knitting from the perspective of Miss Marple, Agatha Christie’s brilliant sleuth; the sampler that Eliza, a double agent in the fictional world of Quicksilver, set in the time of Louis XIV and James II, cross-stitches; and the magnificent crocheted bedspread that plays a prominent role in the novel Like Water for Chocolate.

For this issue, we have gone even further afield, ranging from plain sewing in Daniel Defoe’s Moll Flanders to rug hooking in Lucy Maud Montgomery’s Pat of Silver Bush and knitting in Edith Wharton’s short story “Roman Fever.” And there’s much more.
