...long awaited sequel to Warp and Weft ...journey now on the Silken Web where... ...the Wheel of the year has turned twice since Sybille disappeared mysteriously and the women charged with fi nding her have grown beyond recognition..., as has the group who gathered from all realms to help... ...Sam fl ew through the Aethers, unfettered, free of all human burden and pain. A cool, fragrant wind, ruffl ed long fl ight quills, all memory gone, of who or what she was, had been or ever would be, in that moment. Carried under a cloak of musky-sweet feathers; safe, a gentle recall emerged of warm arms and soft down. ...Then, something was pulling at her, tugging at her mind insistently; ‘Sam,’ she heard. ‘Sam, come back, it’s not your time to leave.’ ...An acrid odour seared her nostrils; offensive, as burnt feathers or hair and she fought to maintain her blissful fl ight away from the realms of pain and dark matters. ...A voice grew stronger, this one deeper, a masculine melodic tone; Morgan sang to her, calling her back... ‘Life is a struggle when we see through the veil... hands become fragile; skin fair and pale. Come home from the dreaming... come back to this place, now’s no time to travel, come home from this space. You are a dreamer, one who sees true... memories awaken ...feather’s blue-black hue. Free fl ying... falling... then higher you soar, come home from your dreaming... there is more... so much more.’ ...Come with them on the next stage of the search as Sam learns disturbing and heartbreaking things about her passage through the ‘Between’.

Today when we hear the word “craft,” a whole host of things come immediately to mind: microbreweries, artisanal cheeses, and an array of handmade objects. Craft has become so overused, that it can grate on our ears as pretentious and strain our credulity. But its overuse also reveals just how compelling craft has become in modern life. In The Shape of Craft, Ezra Shales explores some of the key questions of craft: who makes it, what do we mean when we think about a crafted object, where and when crafted objects are made, and what this all means to our understanding of craft. He argues that, beyond the clichés, craft still adds texture to sterile modern homes and it provides many people with a livelihood, not just a hobby. Along the way, Shales upends our definition of what is handcrafted or authentic, revealing the contradictions in our expectations of craft. Craft is—and isn’t—what we think.

No-Sew Love is filled with ideas for the non-sewing crafter or for the more casual sewist who would rather not haul out the sewing machine for a quick project. Materials all easily found at craft and fabric stores—hem tape, fusible webbing, a variety of glues, and of course, fabric—are all you need to whip up the 50 no-sew wonders in the book. There are throw pillows, grommet curtain panels, cute kids' clothing, holiday decorations, and even accessories for you! Projects are photographed at each step for crystal-clear directions, and sure-to-please results.

Using the Nguzo Saba, or “seven principals” of Kwanzaa, the author has created an unforgettable story that shows how family members can pull together, for their own good and the good of the entire community. Magnificent and inspiring linoleum block prints by Daniel Minter bring joy to this Kwanzaa celebration. This is a fixed-format ebook, which preserves the design and layout of the original print book.
