Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
nbsp; In 2009, tastemaker and bestselling author Lena Corwin turned the top floor of her Brooklyn brownstone into a studio and began hosting classes for local crafters. In Lena Corwin's Made by Hand , she re-creates and builds upon her popular workshop series in order to reach crafters in Brooklyn and beyond. For this "best of" collection, she has chosen expert teachers and her favorite projects: Jenny Gordy introduces us to knitted socks and elegantly sewn tops and dresses; Cal Patch teaches how to make a modern embroidery sampler as well as a braided rag rug; and Corwin herself presents her favorite screen-printing and stamping techniques. In total, there are 26 lessons/projects, all presented with step-by-step photos and illustrations.

"Gone are the days of a crafter only having a single interest. Between Design*Sponge, Apartment Therapy, Pinterest, and thousands of gorgeous blogs, today's makers are constantly inspired to make things by hand. All a crafter really needs are inspirational examples and excellent step-by-step instructions and By Hand provides plenty of both. The concept for By Hand came about in 2009 when Lena turned the top floor of her Brooklyn brownstone into a studio and began to host an eclectic course of classes, such as machine-sewing, hand-embroidering, pickle-making and perfume-making. By Hand will include core techniques and projects for a wide array of crafts, from advanced screen-printing and dyeing techniques (which she teaches), to beginner's embroidery, braided rag rugs, knitted socks, simple sewn dresses, beaded and braided jewelry, toy-making, candle-making and soap-making (to name a few). Lena is highly regarded in the craft and design community as a tastemaker and for this book, Lena has acted as a "curator, " providing crafters with projects that she herself has found personally fascinating and has sought to learn over the years. For most of the projects, she turns to teachers, experts in their field, to walk crafters through the step-by-steps of each technique. Gorgeous photographs of the crafters in action will accompany lovely photos of finished projects"--Publisher's description.
