Mystical Stitches: Embroidery for Personal Empowerment and Magical Embellishment
Explore personal transformation through the stitching of dreams and intentions.
Mystical Stitches combines the beloved and accessible craft of embroidery with a spiritual element, introducing a rich treasury of 200 magical symbols you can use to infuse your everyday items with intention. Author Christi Johnson offers unique patterns inspired by botanicals, animals, numbers, the cosmos, earth elements, zodiac signs, and mythical beasts, for novice or well-practiced crafters to combine into talismans with personal meaning. Whether you choose to embellish your clothing, items in the home, or other personal effects, hand-stitching magical symbols on your most treasured possessions will give them a whole new level of meaning.
Johnson’s folk art style is vibrant and unintimidating, and provides a framework for bringing spiritual elements into physical form. She works from the belief that through self-expression, we discover our power to transform our worlds. In addition to creating mystical garments that blend elements of botanical dyes with handcrafted stitches, she also offers workshops in natural dyeing and embroidery, and has created kits and booklets for students and DIYers.
