Hand Embroidery

Joyful Daily Stitching, Seam by Seam by Valerie Bothell

I’ve been digging around the internet to find out where you can get a copy of “Joyful Daily Stitching, Seam by Seam” by Valerie Bothell because, even though I got my copy at Joann, it’s not showing up on the Joann.com website.

If you’re planning to follow along on my hand embroidery adventure in July, I’ll be using this book for inspiration:

I know this book is available at Joann stores because that’s where I bought mine. But if you can’t find it there, I did find it at Amazon for $12.49 for the Kindle edition and $17.54 for the paperback. (Not an affiliate link)

I absolutely love this book! The photography alone is amazing but even more important – the instructions for each stitch are so clear and concise I feel like I’m going to easily be able to create these beautiful designs even though I haven’t picked up a skein of embroidery floss in more than 30 years! I can’t wait to get started!

If you’re curious about what’s inside, here’s a quick video walk-through I did a couple of weeks ago. Enjoy!

Donna Anderson 'works' at Joann Fabrics at 4600 W. Broad St. in Columbus, OH. Just look for the crazy old lady behind the cutting counter. As a kid, she ran with scissors and ate paste. She's since found safer, more creative ways to use her Fiskars and Mod Podge. Next time you're at the store, stop by the cutting counter and have a chat! (Just please don't ask her about lightbulbs!)
