Material world written by Perri Lewis was contributed to by Jacqui.
Perri Lewis is the Telegraph Craft Columunist and popular craft blogger, she makes it her task to bring the world of making into the 21st century.
In Material World, Perri enlisted the help of luminaries from the worlds of art, craft, design and fashion to share their knowledge and advice. Among these include Rob Ryan, Emma Bridgewater, Grayson Perry, Philip Treacy, Tatty Devine, Topshop,Tracey Emin and our very own found Jacqui Pearce as the cross stitch expert!
Instead of just giving the reader individual projects, you can learn the techniques for crafts such as paper-cutting, dress-making, printing, encrusting, leather work and tailoring. However, if you prefer more guidance, there are 15 projects to make, including découpage shoes, a patchwork Louis chair and a printed scarf.
