ALABAMA CHANIN - THE GEOMETRY OF HAND-SEWING ERRATA 1

ERRATA: THE GEOMETRY OF HAND-SEWING

We’ve written in the past about the challenges that come from writing a book. This book alone went through numerous drafts and made its way around our studio to be proofed and edited many times before being sent back to our editors at Abrams. Despite the rounds of proofing and editing, incorrect versions of the following stitches somehow slipped through the cracks and made it into the book. Updated, correct photos of the Double Chain Stitch, Zigzag Chain Stitch back, and Coral Stitch back are shown below for reference. We’re sorry for the mix-up, and we hope that you love the book as much as we do. Happy sewing!

    Might it be possible to combine the above pictures in a .pdf file that we can download, print, and keep in our books?

    Lessons in humility: I spent my career as a graphic designer, ending it as a yearbook adviser. My goodness, I have seen typos; it seems no matter how hard you may try, how diligent you may be, errors sneak through! Segue to one of my staff’s first meetings with the yearbook sales rep who brought in the only perfect book he’d ever seen. Inside, all of the pages were blank! Your book is incredible! It is detailed in every way from concept, to indexing, to diagrams & photos, to prose, & to stitching. Every quilting shop in the country should be selling copies. Congratulations on an amazing reference guide and beautiful job!

    My Dear,
    I was so excited about the Book!! To be very honest ( hoping it doesn’t bother you) I will not be worried about checking the pases all the time to see if I am correct or not.
    I was Waiting really long to finally found out the Book has many “erratas”.
    I think the nice thing to do here is to check well the Book and send a “Good, 100% Reviewed Book”, to the People who bought it.
    Is like when I bake a cake for my clients,
    If someone ask me a Cake with Roses Design and I Design Poppies I have to fix that ( not by sending an email) Don’t you think?
    I hope you can understand my Point of view.
    Kind Regards,
    Veronica

    I do love your book, but why oh why do people put an extra small spiral binders on their books. It t is impossible to open this book and lay it flat unless you hold it up and shake it first. Please consider this for the next printing. The pages are going to be torn out in no time if you use it regularly as I already do.
    Thanks.

      Thank you for your feedback, Ann! We are very excited about having a spiral binding, as this is the first of the five to be offered like this. Our intent was to make it easy to use as you work on your projects.

    I am loving for this book! You make all the stitches do-able.
    I did find a disconnection, On French Knot description on page 96 refer to page 129, Chapter 5. It is not there but I think it is page 134 Chapter 6.

      Hi Peggy,

      Thank you for bringing this to our attention! Yes, it appears that you can find the filling stitch on page 134 instead. We’ll make a note for the reprinting. We so glad to hear that you are enjoying the book! Happy Holidays!

    I ordered this book immediately after binge watching your workshop on Craftsy. I’m not bothered at all by a few typos that really shouldn’t have any dire impact on anyone’s projects. The inspiration that you and your team provide more than make up for nonmaterial oversights. I do hope that you consider doing more Craftsy workshops. I’d subscribe for a swatch of the month type workshop (on Craftsy or Vimeo or whatever platform). I have some of your other books and my resolution this year is to step away from my machine (occasionally) and actually complete an AC garment. Thanks so much.
