Embroidered Life, a Book About the Art of Sarah K. Benning

Embroidered Book, an embroidery book about Sarah K. Benning

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.
