Kata Golda's Hand-Stitched Felt

Tomorrow—October 1, 2009—is the release date of my new craft book, Kata Golda's Hand-Stitched Felt, published by STC Craft (an imprint of Stewart, Tabori & Chang/Abrams Books).

The process began in the summer of 2008 with the creating of a list of projects; it then continued with the process of making those projects, deciding which ones to include, and then making them again—but this time documenting each step of the way.

[BELOW] Kata Golda's studio, with pincushion (a project from the book Kata Golda's Hand-Stitched Felt).

This included calling out which stitches and design elements many of the projects share, and then thinking/writing about the origins of the projects and the origins of how I came to this place of making things — all of which was studied by my editor, Liana Allday, who demonstrated a careful balance of questioning and clarifying while also making sure to honor my voice and style.

I am thrilled to hold a copy of my finished book and hope you are inspired by the simplicity, story, charm, color and texture of the projects within it.

[BELOW] More projects from the book Kata Golda's Hand-Stitched Felt.
