Stories that are knitted into every stitch

Book 1 of Stories in Stitches is now available for purchase at this site.
 
Have you ever thought about the stories that are knitted into every stitch?  You know that the things we knit are special. You feel the vibration of connection when you give a gift you’ve knitted or work on a pattern with a friend.
 
But the stories embedded in each piece are special. And finally, here’s a knitting book series that makes that direct connection.
 
I’ve been working on Stories In Stitches for a long time already–over a year–with my creative partner, Ava Coleman. Ava is a historian, a writer, a designer, and a lace knitter extraordinaire.

Together we will be presenting you with several stories and projects in each volume of Stories In Stitches. In this first release, you’ll get to read about our personal stories and find out how Stories In Stitches came to be.
 

We are so excited that the PDF of Stories In Stitches 1 is ready to go to the printer and we’ll be getting the files uploaded and the shopping cart ready to take pre-orders (with special early bird prices) in just 2 weeks!

In Volume #1, Ava will tell you about Grace Coolidge, who was an avid knitter as well as an enthusiastic baseball fan.
