The pleasures to be had from slowing down can be many, with connections to sustainability, simplicity, reflection, and tuning into traditional and other multicultural textile traditions. Slow Stitch is a much-needed guide to adopting a less-is-more approach, valuing quality over quantity, and bringing a meaningful and thoughtful approach to textile practice.

Claire Wellesley-Smith introduces a range of ways in which you can slow your textile work down, including:
* Using simple techniques inspired by traditional practice (including hand-stitch rhythms)
* Reusing and re-inventing materials (reuse even old textile projects)
* Limiting your equipment
* Mending revisited (practical and decorative techniques)
* Project ideas and resources that help towards making a more sustainable textile practice

Richly illustrated throughout, and showcasing work from the best textile artists who work in this way, this is a truly inspirational book for those looking to reconnect with their craft and to find a new way of working.
