Book Description

Stitch for a greener future with this stunning collection of environment and nature focused designs from leading cross stitch designer Emma Congdon, better known as Stitchrovia.

Whether it’s a plea to save the bees, clean up the oceans, appreciate nature, or unplug from technology, this celebration of the green movement in thread will remind us of the need to come together to build a brighter future, one stitch at a time.

This collection features 20 exclusive designs, each with an easy-to-read full colour and symbol chart. Alongside the designs, Emma shares her thoughts and inspirations for each one, with a detailed materials list and instructions for stitching. Beginners to cross stitch will find a helpful guide to the stitches and techniques used  and the beauty of cross stitch is that if you can sew one cross you can sew all these spectacular designs!

The designs range in size from mini hoops to larger scale samplers, so there are projects to suit everyone  and they all share Emma's skill with colour, typography and design which have made her one of the world's best-loved cross stitch designers. Cross Stitch for the Earth is printed on sustainable FSC paper, fully recyclable, printed using plant-based inks and every purchase includes a donation to Friends of the Earth, an environmental campaigning community dedicated to the wellbeing and protection of the natural world and everyone in it.
