Susan and I made a special trip to pick up 10 copies of this extraordinary book yesterday. It has over 380 pages of the most amazing textiles, from Muhu Island, Estonia. It includes beautiful examples of knitting, with charts and techniques
With beautiful historical and contemporary photos
Embroidery, with details and charts
If I could only have one textile book, this would be it. My desert island book! I admit it is not cheap and weighing over 2kg, it will be heavy to order through the mail, but it is worth every penny. If you are looking for a last minute gift for a fibrephile who has everything, this is it. They won’t have it already because we are the first store in the world to have an English copy. Unless, of course, the fibrephile is me. Susan gave me my copy yesterday as a Christmas present. Yippee!
On other news…
We are expecting our book into the shop any minute now. I will post more about that tomorrow.
