The Finer Edge: Crocheted Trims Motifs & Borders
(US Winners Only)

Author: Kristin Omdahl
Publisher: Interweave

While crochet edgings are customarily used to trim or finish blankets and garments, designer Kristin Omdahl treats you to both traditional and novel new ways to expand your use of edgings. You will learn how edging patterns can be used to create entire fabrics, reformatted to make individual decorative motifs, reverse-engineered from existing fabrics, and even used to create three-dimensional designs. Focusing on construction techniques for edgings, The Finer Edge is divided into separate sections based on top-down, sideways and bottom-up methods to help guide the reader. Though there are 12 project patterns that highlight the edgings, you’ll be inspired to creatively mix and match within each edging’s section. Also included in this gorgeous book are charts, illustrations and photographs of crochet swatches, and a pattern collection that includes multiple sizes, including plus sizes. Discover innovation at its finest with The Finer Edge.

Beyond Knit & Purl
(International Shipping)

Author: Kate Atherley
Publisher: Cooperative Press

Beyond Knit and Purl is the knitting book you always wished you’d had when you started but didn’t. This book is not just for beginning knitters. Even those who’ve been knitting for years will have an astonishing number of “ah-ha!” moments inside its pages. As a technical editor and, more importantly, as a teacher, Kate knows where knitters hit roadblocks and how to overcome them; she shares her many years of experience in Beyond Knit and Purl. Confused about increases or decreases? What’s ease? If you’ve only knitted dishcloths, are you ready to move on to socks or should you try something else first? What does “decrease stitches evenly across” actually mean in practice? Do you need some Dirty Secrets or Knitterly Advice? (There are plenty of both scattered throughout the book’s pages). Or do you need some help choosing the right pattern for you? This and much, much more are in the book.

Sewing School 2
(US Winners Only)

Authors: Amie Petronis Plumley, Andria Lisle
Publisher: Storey Publishing

For kids who have mastered hand sewing, machine sewing opens up exciting new possibilities! With Sewing School 2, children ages 7 and up can make 20 creative projects as they develop their machine sewing skills. With plenty of photos and step-by-step instructions written in kid-friendly language, young sewists can work independently and at their own pace. While creating projects that range from a secret message pillow and a water bottle holder to wall pockets, a zippy pouch, and even a fabric guitar and microphone, beginners will learn how to thread a sewing machine, how to use different fabrics and patterns, and why and when to use a particular stitch. “Make It Yours” suggestions offer ways for kids to personalize their projects, resulting in unique items that will be loved and treasured for years to come.
