A Stitcher's Journey
# BD187
From Blackbird Designs
By Adams, Barbara & Allen, Alma
In Cross Stitch
DESCRIPTION
Curl up in your favorite chair and go on a stitcher's retreat with Barb Adams and Alma Allen. You can peek into their sewing boxes, while away some time making one of the delightful projects and, study the exercise book dated 1852 from the Kildare Place Model School in Ireland. If you've always wanted to take a class from Barb and Alma, you're in luck! "A Stitcher's Journey" is a collection of the projects taught by them in classes and retreats in the past year. Paint and embellish your very own sewing box, stitch some pincushions and even decorate some pins! Inside the exercise book, they found a sampler and other examples of stitching. The authors believe the young woman who stitched the sampler and attended the school was in training to become a teacher/governess. They think she immigrated from Ireland to Australia, as they found her book in Australia. She wasn't able to take many belongings with her as she traveled, but she saved space in her trunk for her exercise book. The exercise book is filled with pieces she meticulously stitched. Each is an example of what she might teach her future pupils. Pictures of her work and the pattern for her sampler are included in this book too. Her journey is the one celebrated in this book
