Sewing is popular with all ages and this series, Love to Sew, focuses on the latest hot trends. The 64 page handy square format gives us room for twenty projects, each with simple step-by-step instructions, beautiful photographs, as well as a basic techniques and materials section at the front of the book. Fabric and thread are all you need to create this wonderful range of stitched confectionary, and once decorated with buttons, ribbons and beads they look good enough to eat. These tempting treats are great fun to make and can be used to decorate your home or provide a special and unique gift for a friend or relative. Projects include a box of chocolates, a fruit tart, a creamy meringue, cup cakes, and much more.
Greta Fitchett has worked creatively with textiles for many years, specialising first in embroidery before becoming a contemporary quiltmaker. Early training in home economics has left an interest in food, and a current theme is creating food related soft sculptures. Travel influences her choice of subject for quilts, using small details such as pattern, colour and texture for inspiration. As well as teaching adults, Greta makes and exhibits quilts, and writes regularly for magazines. Greta lives in Derby. Check out her website: www.heatherleadesign.com
