The Details of In Detail

What is the In Detail series?

My In Detail series is an electronic publication that takes an up-close, or in detail, look at original pieces of material culture, usually useful, handmade pieces with a whimsical or fanciful side. Each publication is packed full of photographs and information about the object, how it was made, what was used, how it has weathered time. Most editions of In Detail include a section showing you how to recreate the item for yourself. I try to write 3 or 4 editions of In Detail each year, depending on how frequently I find an item of interest. In Detail is available in my Etsy shop. Patreon Patrons at the “Straw Sewer” level and above, receive In Detail as well as additional Patreon exclusive versions of In Detail.

Current Editions of In Detail:

This edition of In Detail explores a paper pieced pin ball made of silks. The directions section provides information on creating a pin ball or an ornament.

This edition of In Detail is a little different as it has a surprise twist and more of a story before it explores Earl’s ball. This e-publication starts off exploring this corded ball and concludes with directions for making your own ball. Look for this e-publication in my Etsy shop.

This edition of In Detail brings back the project I offered while recovering from surgeries years ago. This pin ball is created from little pillows.

I fell in love with this velvet slipper pincushion and was excited to offer it as the second edition of In Detail.

This Blue Ribbon Sewing Case was my very first edition of In Detail. This is an amazing sewing case made from a blue ribbon. Note: this is the edition that does not include directions for making the subject.
