Ear­li­er this spring, I shared a selec­tion of embroi­dery books that I own and love. One of those pub­li­ca­tions on that list was a yet-to-be-released book titled Empow­ered Embroi­dery by Amy L. Fraz­er. Well, it’s now avail­able! If you’re look­ing to try thread paint­ing and stitch projects of inspir­ing indi­vid­u­als, this book is def­i­nite­ly for you.

Amy shows you basic stitch­es that you’ll need to know in order to com­plete pat­terns depict­ing Fri­da Kahlo, Michelle Oba­ma, Ruth Bad­er Gins­burg, and more. Each woman is shown as a step-by-step process and paired with pho­tos that enlarge the stitch­es. This makes it eas­i­er to mim­ic the tech­niques and to know that you’re cor­rect­ly com­plet­ing the pattern.

Empow­ered Embroi­dery: Trans­form Sketch­es Into Embroi­dery Pat­terns and Stitch Strong, Icon­ic Women from the Past and Present is for sale on Bookshop.

Learn how to stitch pioneering women when you pick up a copy of Empowered Embroidery by Amy L. Frazer.
