My first collection of thirty special things to sew incorporates memory into every stitch. Using basic sewing, quilting, embroidery, and other craft skills, these projects take their inspirations from everyday photos, drawings, souvenirs, vintage fabrics, personalized details, and special life events. Organized into three sections—for the Little Ones, for Every Day, and for Special Occasions—many are simple enough for even the beginning sewer to complete. A variety of techniques are explained throughout, from hand-sewing and embroidery to appliqué, stenciling, and transferring photos to fabric. Sidebars provide ideas for giving gifts, collecting vintage materials, labeling your creations, and taking photographs.

Whether it’s a quilt made from baby clothes, an apron featuring a favorite family recipe, a tote bag commemorating a treasured vacation, or a pillow sewn with family photos, in as little as a weekend anyone can fashion a keepsake for the ages that can be enjoyed every day.
