I’ve written a book about embroidery artist Sarah K. Benning! Called Embroidered Life, it focuses on Sarah’s life as told through her embroidery practice. (It is NOT a DIY book.)
Embroidered Life was published by Chronicle Books on September 3, 2019. It’s now available at the online retailer of your choice.
This is not your grandma’s embroidery book. Featuring a die-cut case with actual stitching on the front cover, Embroidered Life shows that illustrations created with needle and thread can be strikingly contemporary. From beautiful botanicals to bold affirmations, the work of self-taught fiber artist Sarah K. Benning gives any embroidery enthusiast, art lover, or plant fanatic a new appreciation for the craft of needlework. In this eye-catching art book, popular blogger Sara Barnes guides readers through Benning’s innovative embroidery process and successful business model, offering behind-the-scenes insights to inspire makers and creative entrepreneurs.
