Working in partnership with Pendleton Mills, Susan Beal presents a collection of modern heirloom projects to sew and enjoy for generations. From the sweet, simple primer on techniques (working with wool fabrics, hand-stitching, machine sewing, and quilting) to each individual project's detailed instructions (with tips on cutting, pressing, top-stitching, hand-tying, and more), Beal's passion for sewing shines through in Hand-Stitched Home (Taunton Press).

Staff Pick

Super Mario Bros.! Star Wars! D&D! The periodic table!  No matter how you get your geek on, you will be delighted in the variety of crafts in Susan Beal's latest book, World of Geekcraft.  The delicate Steampunk Pendant is proof that geeks are sexy and the Star Wars Terrariums show that you don't have to be a Jedi to enjoy your crafts.  I'm so enamored with this book that I'm ready to set aside my 20-sided dice, grab my guildies, and start crafting!

Publisher Comments:

Geek meets craft in this fun collection of 25 kooky projects for geeks of any affiliation, from D&D dice earrings, Star Trek pillows, and Super Mario cross-stitch to Star Wars terrariums, a Morse code quilt, and much more.

Organized by difficulty from Not a Jedi Yet to Warp Speed, World of Geekcraft covers a range of popular crafting techniques including beading, quilting, applique, embroidery, and needle felting. Best of all, it's easy to get started with step-by-step instructions and handy templates included in the back of the book. With lots of photos and plenty of geekery throughout, this one-of-a-kind book shows that geek and craft go together like...pixels and cross-stitch
