Introducing Zakka Style – with a giveaway!

Zakka gridFor the fourth title in our Design Collective series, Zakka Style, we have done something new. Rashida Coleman Hale has acted as the compiler and she invited 24 of her favorite designers to each bring you one of their most loved projects—including quilts, softies, pillows, decorative items, and bags.

10824 coverSo what is “zakka,” you ask? Rashida defines it in the introduction of her book:

Zakka has been loosely translated from Japanese to mean “miscellaneous goods,” “many things,” or “sundries.” It has grown to mean a style that embodies a kind of simple charm and uniqueness—something handmade that is useful, yet pleasing. Zakka has evolved into a design style that has become popular all over the world.

Rashida is one of the quilters featured in Block Party—The Modern Quilting Bee and her first zakka project book with Interweave was very well-received. Now we’re thrilled to have her on board as part of our best-selling Design Collective series!

10824_ColemanHale_p11

Zakka Style is filled with simple linen projects that have big style. If linen is hard to find in your local stores, you can substitute a decorator-weight textured solid or a cotton/linen blend to achieve a similar effect.

10824_ColemanHale_p12

As with all of our Design Collective titles, we are focusing on the advanced beginner sewist who does not need a lot of the basic sewing instructions, but wants to dive right into the projects. When we streamline the instructions this way, we can pack in more projects for you make and enjoy into each book, but still give you all of the step-by-step instructions you will need to be successful.

So whether you enjoy embroidery, appliqué, patchwork, or a little bit of everything, you are sure to find something to inspire you in this brand new book. It’s just starting to ship out to quilt shops and booksellers, so if you want to make some last minute gifts and you can’t find Zakka Style locally in time for the holiday, click here to purchase and download the eBook version instantly! Visit our Flickr gallery to see pictures of more projects from this book.

    Probably my favorite zakka is my small cloth zippered take-along sewing bag that was gifted to me by a quilter friend which holds all of my essentials, including other handmade zakkas like my embroidery scissor holder, pincushion, and needle case. I use it to work on projects while traveling, waiting in doctors offices or watching TV.

    I can’t live without the pincushion I made last year. I made it on a whim, but I have long since tossed my store-bought pincushions in favor of this one. I always have it by my side while sewing!

    I’m so excited about this book! It’s on my Christmas lise :) I can’t live without my magnetic pin “cushion.” It’s not cute at all, but very functional. I tried the fabric kind, but my boys would end up using the pins as darts and throwing them at the cushion. I switched to the magnetic kind to make it both less appealing to them and easier for me to pick up stray pins.

    Very interesting. Have long appreciated the Japansee approach to so much. We were fortunate enough to have student from Japan spend a summer with us and not so many years ago, I was able to make a trip to Japan with a group of artists.

    I appreciate being included in this draw and would enjoy the book!

    Oh so exciting! I loved Rashida’s first book – can’t wait for this one. My everyday sundry zakka item I can’t live without is my padded iPhone cover made from Echino fabric with a couple of lines of quilting on each side. It makes me happy every time I see it.
