"This fabulous book arrived in the mail recently, and kudos to @westcoastcrafty! Ideal for beginners, but also helpful for experienced stitchers like me who are self-taught. Susan covers all the essentials about tools and techniques in clear, well-illustrated text, and with dozens of creative project ideas for embroidery and patchwork. A must-have for any library!"

--Denyse Schmidt

"In the pages of 'sew + quilt: techniques + projects for hand-stitching + patchwork', experienced needlecrafter Susan Beal provides clear, step-by-step instructions for 4 fundamental hand-stitching techniques and 4 foundational quilt blocks as the foundation for learning how to use hand-stitching as an embellishment to add texture and color to quilt projects. Each fundamental technique includes a small project as a learning tool, followed by 12 more-generous yet accessible patchwork projects that build on the basics. A mix of traditional and modern patterns for both smaller, faster quilts and larger quilts. Step-by-step instruction, with lots of illustrations and photos, plus tips and advice on everything a quilter needs to experience the joy of making something beautiful and personal. Beautifully and usefully illustrated throughout, 'sew + quilt' is an ideal instructional guide and reference for beginning quilting students, and unreservedly recommended for community library Needlecraft & Quilting collections."
