The Sewists are a new breed of designer-makers. From jewelry to book-binding, felt craft to embroidery, screen printing to dressmaking, they encompass all areas of art and craft, and often combine techniques in new ways.

Author and fellow sewist Jo Perry has interviewed 20 designers about their working life and inspiration, and persuaded each one to part with a project for readers to make. Projects include a cameo brooch using freehand machine embroidery, a fun fur and felt creature, a circus troupe mobile, block-printed napkins, subversive cross stitch, and many more. Each project is clearly explained and includes step-by-step illustrations and specially commissioned photographs of the finished piece.

Also included is a CD containing templates, stitch charts, and a blouse pattern--everything you need to complete the projects in the book. Anyone who enjoys sewing and crafts, and can use a sewing machine, will relish The Sewists.
