Pattern Darning in the 21st Century

Finger Step Design's Latest Book


Thanks to Judie at Thistle Needleworks, I learned that the newest Finger Step Designs book is out. It's darning stitches! The full title is Side By Side:  Pattern Darning in the 21st Century.  Judie says the little 86 page book has 264 "charted and illustrated motifs."  The photo above is the cover.  The book distributor is Custom House.   The book, like all the Finger Step Design books has the diagrammed stitches and also has several projects based on the stitches if you like doing counted stitch samplers.  So you can use the book as a reference or you can use the project charts to make something fun.

The book is available at the Alex Paras website (and there are links to stitched projects from the book available there).

I didn't find the book anywhere else yet as it is brand new, but your local shop can get you copies from Custom House if you'd rather buy local.
