About this title

Synopsis:

Explore the amazing versatility of the magical arts of needlecraft with thirty-five original projects and patterns in Magical Needlework by Dorothy Morrison.

Whether you do knitting, cross stitch, or other common techniques, Magical Needlework will not only show you magical patterns, but the underlying magic of each movement and stitch so that all of your needlework becomes magical.

The projects in this book will help you create magically charged items that bring helpful, positive energy into your home and your life. Magical Needlework offers descriptions of twelve different embroidery stitches, nine magically symbolic patchwork designs, and twenty-eight crochet and knitting stitches to help you turn even the most mundane craft projects into magical masterpieces.

Along with an overview of the origins and folklore associated with each of the crafts in this book and an introduction to the ancient arts of spinning and weaving, you'll find instructions for:

·Natural dyeing with herbs, flowers, bark, and roots
·Sewing a fairie dress for Midsummer Night's Eve
·Safeguarding your home with an herbal protection charms
·Crocheting a pentacle wall hanging
·Knitting a meditation mat for balance in your life

Spark your creative spirit and fill your home with magical energy and enchanting handicrafts. It's easy with Magical Needlework.

Review:

In this lighthearted look at the magical potential of a craft that many might overlook, Morrison's fascination with puns ("what's sew magical") and rhymes ("counted cross-stitches in a row make the magic really grow") not only add a touch of her good humor, but help with understanding the importance of rhyme when it comes to holding power. The 35 projects Morrison presents cover all kinds of needlecraft including: sewing, quilting, embroidery, crochet, knitting, and even the ancient arts of dyeing, spinning, and weaving. If you've never threaded a needle, this book is the perfect primer covering all the basics, both mundane and magical. If you're a pro with the thread, this book will give you a new appreciation of the magic in your own hands. --Brian Patterson
