Aimee Ray's Doodle Stitching Books


UPDATE: Congratulations to Aileen! She is our randomly selected winner of the Doodle Stitching giveaway. Thanks so much to everyone for participating!


Six years ago, I had the pleasure of working with Aimee Ray on her first Doodle Stitching book. It was so exciting to see Aimee’s talent come to life on the pages of Doodle Stitching, and when the book was completed, I knew we hadn’t seen the last of her.

And, lucky for us, we haven’t! I left Lark to have a baby and stay home for a few years, but as many of you know, Aimee went on to author Doodle Stitching: The Motif Collection. And oh-so-serendipitously, the first project that came across my desk when I returned to Lark last July was helping to shepherd Aimee’s third Doodle Stitching book, Doodle Stitching: Embroidery & Beyond, through its final phases before publication.

It didn’t surprise me to discover that Aimee hadn’t lost her knack for creating stylish, fresh, and fun designs. True to its name, Embroidery & Beyond includes a variety of techniques such as Cross Stitch, Appliqué, Redwork, and Sashiko and Shisha, just to name a few. And you’ll be treated to all sorts of new and fetching projects, like a charming Fair Isle Doll Skirt; a cozy Snow White, Red Rose Fleece Scarf; a snazzy Canvas Cuckoo Clock; and an adorable Felt Appliqué Babushka doll.
