About the Author

About Carolyn Pearce

Carolyn Pearce has always been fascinated by fabrics, laces, threads and buttons. She learned to embroider 'properly' in the 1980s and was hooked. Describing herself as a ‘frustrated artist’, Carolyn uses her threads as a paint box. Her favourite technique is always the one she is working on now and her ‘other love’ - the garden - provides constant inspiration for her needlework. Carolyn's teaching and writing skills are put to good use in workshops throughout Australia. She is also the convenor for the course in Silk Ribbon Embroidery at the Embroiderers' Guild of New South Wales.

Reviews

Mary Corbet's Needle 'n Thread

Im so excited that Inspirations Studios decided to print a 10th Anniversary Edition of Home Sweet Home by Carolyn Pearce! This is a fantastic book it was when it was first published ten years ago, and it is even more so today. The new edition features a few changes.

Ten years ago, I reviewed Home Sweet Home here, and since then, Im still as enthusiastic about the book as ever! The original book went through a couple re-printings, and for a while, its been hard to come by. Thankfully, its been reprinted in a fresh new edition, and yay! It has even been expanded a bit! The 10th Anniversary Edition has three new accessories in it a scissor keep, a pinwheel, and a bodkin (or a laying tool or awl) cover.

The exciting thing about Home Sweet Home is the instructive value of the book. Within, you will learn how to finish embroidered items into beautiful accessories in clever and accessible ways. Youll learn how to make useful things. And you can apply that knowledge to future projects with your own designs, for your own unique take on constructed embroidered things. Its a real treasure trove of how-to content that will serve you well!

In the book, youll find instructions for embroidering and constructing a dozen needlework accessories, plus the delightful cottage box to store your favorite tools and notions in. You can stitch it all! Or you can pick and choose! You can use your own threads and favorite colors, relying on Carolyns sample as a guide, or you can make use of her extensive and detailed materials lists to recreate the project as shown in the book.
