About the Author

About Loyce Saxton

Loyce Saxton has been designing embroidery patterns for the past 16 years. She lives with her husband in Oregon, where she was born and raised, and loves the mountains and trees that surround her home. The ladies of her family have sewed for generations, and when Loyce was a little girl, her mother would bring out a box of thread, buttons, fabric, beads, felt, pins and needles, and just let her play. Most of what she made were doll clothes. She has been sewing since then. She not only made quilts, but she sewed clothes for herself and for her children. If she’s sewing, she’s happy. As a wife and mother of three she kept busy with family life until the children were almost grown. Then, with nobody to sew for, she began Yesterday’s Charm, a pattern company specializing in hand embroidery and quilting patterns. She was always encouraged to be creative, and the sewing treasures of her mother’s are now hers. Those sewing-room treasures were the inspiration for her business. She is always inspired by the past and is constantly searching for new and fresh ideas. You can see her full collection of patterns online at www.yesterdayscharm.com. This is Loyce's first pattern book she is the sole designer of. Loyce has published many designs with Annie's.

Sunbonnet Sue fans will find Loyce Saxtons Redwork Collection for All Seasons (published by Search Press) an absolute delight.The book begins with the basics of redwork embroidery, introducing you to suitable fabrics, floss, hoops and methods making it a perfect introduction to this form of embroidery. There is an illustrated stitch guide which clearly explain how to create a selection of stitches that you will need to use within the following projects and even instructions on successfully using the iron-on transfer patterns included in the book. There are a number of featured projects including a spring pillow, Easter towels, a summer tray, hot pads and gift bags. Each project is provided with clear instructions from beginning to end as well as full colour photographs of the finished products. Full patterns are included within the book both as an iron-on transfer or as a traceable pattern allowing you to choose the transfer method you prefer to use.

Wonderfully put together and a fabulous bookcase addition for both beginners and experienced embroiderers alike, we think its also a brilliant bargain too with an rrp of only £9.99.


January 2015

Sunbonnet Sue is iconic. When shes done right, shes just adorable. Admittedly, there are some Sues I like better than others. The vintage, homey, sweet Sunbonnet Sue well, she just pulls my little heartstrings. And so, there I was, a few weeks ago, meandering through new embroidery books out on the market, when my eyes were arrested by a whole redwork collection devoted to the sweet, vintage, homey Sue that I love! Sunbonnet Sue Redwork Collection offers 16 different Sunbonnet Sue vignettes. Some are a little more elaborate than others all are Perfect Sue.

In addition to the iron-on transfer designs and the embroidery itself, there are suggestions and instructions for ten projects that can be made with the finished redwork Sues.

Pros & Cons: Well, I cant think of any cons at all the book gives everything it promises, and its easy to understand, well-written, and very affordable. If you like redwork, or if you like vintage embroidery vignettes, or if you like Sunbonnet Sue all are good reasons to love this book and add it to your needlework library!
