Crafts hit the catwalk

Cross stitch shoes by Dolce & GabbanaOne of our favourite things about crafting is the fact that stitching, knitting & making skills have handed down through the generations - giving us a link to past generations of makers.

Now it seems traditional tapestry (which has been a bit neglected until recent years) is making a comeback in the fashion world! Hand-stitching was seen in many of the big fashion houses's new collections this Autumn.

Thanks to Couture Bay for this round-up of Needlepoint highlights - Needlepoint: looking towards fall. Yet more proof that stitching is a truly timeless activity!
