The Stitch Journal makes it easy to work through the book once stitch at a time to build and perfect your skills—start with the most basic, easy stitches and work through the book towards the more complex. This skill-building tool gives you the opportunity to practice challenging stitches before applying them to a larger project or garment.


You’ll receive two of The School of Making Binders along with pages that will allow you to organize your stitch samples as you complete them with room for notes under each stitch. There are also pages included that hold larger samples and swatches for use with patterned stitches or experimenting with working off the grid.

    Wow this sounds like a fun and fantastic way to learn all the different stitches etc without it being overwhelming,something other books have been for me in the past. As someone who is extremely interested in the art of refashioned clothing this would teach me a way to create beautiful pieces in a soothing way that would allow me to express individuality and creativity in my own way that would hopefully be less stressful and physically and mentally painful for me. I am always in awe of the work created by Ms Chanin.
