Whether you’re a farmgirl or just wish you were, MaryJane’s Stitching Room is a treasure trove of projects that will have you stitching, crocheting, embroidering, and tatting like one before you know it.

Along with more of MaryJane’s engaging essays and endearing farmgirl wisdom, you’ll find projects that have an irresistible appeal for the contemporary crafter who is intrigued with the delicate handcrafts of yesteryear. MaryJane includes nostalgic patterns with simple step-by-step instructions for projects to wear, for gifts, or to bring down-home charm to any room of the home, all with her unmistakable farmgirl flair.

MaryJane’s Stitching Room is a wonderful companion to MaryJane’s Ideabook, Cookbook, Lifebook, but it also stands alone as a useful guide to the handiwork of days gone by.

Review: MaryJane's Stitching Room

User Review  - Cassandra Carico - Goodreads

I love this book. The projects are ones I have wanted to dive into, but many of the vintage books that teach arts such as tatting assume a bit of knowledge I haven't already. The feel and overall aesthetic of this book are just to my liking. I am going to enjoy doing these projects. Read full review
