A Sea to Stitch is a project and instructional book featuring a beautiful sea-themed alphabet in two sizes, a variety of oceanic color schemes for interpreting the letters in embroidery, a collection of coordinating ornamental designs, and tips on adapting the designs to names and words that you create.

The book is 88 pages of gorgeous inspiration and instruction! It is written in both English and Italian.

Inside, you'll find step-by-step instructions, including the order of work and all stitching methods, that are clear and easy to follow.

The embroidery is suitable for beginners and beyond, as the stitches are classic embroidery stitches, employed in creative ways.

You can find further details about the book in my in-depth review here.

Imported from Italy and self-published by the author, A Sea to Stitch is available in the US only through independent needlework shops.


A Sea to Stitch will ship via Priority mail to US addresses only. The book will ship the same day when purchased before 1:00 pm central time, Monday - Friday.
