I might be a bit biased, but that is an impressive display of stitchy talent and a true reflection of just how awesome the stitched arts can be.

It’s been a real honour for me to curate this book and I’m excited to see the project come to fruition.

The book is published by Lark Books –  you can buy it on Amazon right now!
