'Factoria VII' tells the story of beautiful, sophisticated needlework in a rustic hide-away cottage.

12 extraordinary needlework projects.

Compelled by our belief that every stitched piece has a story to tell, for the second book in our Passion Collectors' Series we sought a location that would become part of the story-telling process.

Factoria VII is a history-rich, rustic cottage with interior furnishings that have been curated with as much love and care as the needlework projects themselves. A wonderful union with endless possibilities.

A Passion for Needlework | Factoria VII
 is the ultimate coffee table book and how-to guide for any discerning needlework artisan, this 192 page publication features a hard cover with linen binding, gold foil, ribbon book mark, premium quality print and a pocket for convenient storage of the pattern sheets.

All projects include our world leading step-by-step instructions complete with detailed diagrams, how-to guides, expert tips and tricks and illustrated stitching glossary.
