Fresh on the heels of our astoundingly successful Stash Books imprint, C&T Publishing is excited to announce the creation of FunStitch Studio, a children’s books imprint that strives to instill a love of handmade in the next generation. This imprint’s tagline says it all: “Stitch Your Art Out.”
Our goal is to nurture new sewists, embroiderers, and quilters with accurate, inspirational, educational, and easy-to-use ideas and projects.
Six titles aimed at 8- to 14-year-olds will be published annually and feature 300+ color photos and illustrations, including step-by-step project photos, many showing the young sewist at work. The first title will be released in March 2013.
Each title will include a skill-building component that will teach them how to be confident creators.
Join us in offering kids and parents an opportunity to step away from a screen and make something handmade – today.
