Summary Step inside a world of arcane imagery and rich esoteric symbolism in Stitchcraft: An Embroidery Book of Simple Stitches and Peculiar Patterns. Author Gayla Partridge draws upon her knowledge of phrenology, anatomy, floral design, and Ouija to create deeply imaginative embroidery art. Through extraordinary, stylized photography and detailed close-ups of her designs, readers learn about Partridge's sources of inspiration, technique, and modern twists on an age-old craft. From the anatomy of snakes to bountiful bouquets, from Dia de Los Muertos to a threaded Virgin Mary, readers will be inspired to follow Partridge's exclusive designs, and to create their own.
