The Design Collective | Pincushions – Pre-Order
24th September 2021
After alluding to it for several weeks, today we’re taking a sneak-peak at our upcoming new book and releasing it on pre-order.
While there is truth in the saying ‘if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ there is equal credence in ‘what is now proved was once only imagined’ and here at Inspirations Studios we fiercely believe in always trying new things.
The Design Collective is a brand-new series that breaks the mould of our previous books.
Rather than focusing on a specific technique or single designer, this series brings together a single type of project. For this, the first volume, we approached some of our favourite designers and asked them to create a pincushion, and what an amazing array of projects we received.
What makes this collection stand out is that each and every pincushion is completely unique and absolutely characteristic of its designer.
You can see their individual style in each project, resulting in a book showcasing a single idea in 12 different ways.
The Design Collective | Pincushions not only includes our trademark close- up photography, detailed instructions to stitch and construct each pincushion, along with a full-sized pattern sheet, we have also included design and technique notes pertaining to each project as well as specific commentary from each designer.
For those of us who like to collect things, you’ll be thrilled to know this book is the first of a series, all designed to sit together beautifully on your bookshelf.
But more importantly, the series will offer you more brand-new projects to stitch than you could possibly dream of.
If you love pincushions or love beautiful needlework, this new book is a stitcher’s utopia and unlike anything you have ever seen. Now available for pre-order, shipping late October.
