MEDIA REVIEWS

Many books deal with stitch types in a bland similar manner.  Brandeis here incorporates suggestions within this book, such as how to use text in a thread way….merging handwriting with expression…in stitch!  -Ailish Henderson, Mr. XStitch Magazine

“Brandeis takes us on a journey into the expressive nature of stitch . . . reveals how to manipulate stitches much like an artist might a pencil or paintbrush.” --Embroidery Magazine
