The Design Collective Volume 2 Christmas


Introducing the second volume in The Design Collective. Twelve of the world’s most talented needlework artisans were asked to each design a project to celebrate Christmas with stitch. Each designer was given the same brief. There were no rules. No guidelines. The only criteria: a connection to Christmas. The result? A fabulous range of unique responses, including ornaments and decorations for your home, special gifts and a spectacular bonbon for the Christmas table.

Projects include:
- The Nutcracker by Natalie Dupuis. A beloved Christmas decoration depicted in or nué with additional embellishments to enhance the design.
