The Wordsmith – Wordsmith (n.) one who creates with words

By Janet Clare

I’ve often wished that I kept a diary or an art journal but after many attempts I’ve had to admit that I’m just not that sort. And yet, I really do want to remember and record our ordinary days. After all, what you do every day is more important than what you do once in a blue moon.

One day I realised that I could simply stitch our stories and here we are. ‘The Wordsmith’ is about noticing and cherishing the simple things in life. It’s about love letters, little notes and finding pressed flowers in favourite books. Now’s the time to quieten your mind, gather your memories and slowly piece them together with beautiful fabrics to create a lasting cloth to be treasured by generations to come: a quilted memory to cherish.Full colour throughout with beautiful photography

Full page photographs of every letter block and memory quilt block, providing you with ideas and inspiration to create your very own Memory Quilt

Guidelines for creating an Alphabet Quilt and a Poetry Quilt using the alphabet are included as well as the Memory Quilt.

We will have more about the delightful quilts Janet made as well as fabric she designed in a video which is due to be aired later in April.

but in the meantime – here is a picture of the Memory Quilt:

and a quote from Henry- age 9 – which is on the back of the book:

Memories are cool.   Letters are awesome Use the patterns in my Mum’s book to help you make interesting quilts.
