Vintage Made Modern: Transforming Timeworn Textiles into Treasured Heirlooms.pdf


Create modern heirlooms using vintage materials--a collection of 35 innovative projects showcasing the exceptional beauty in timeworn textiles.

     Vintage Made Modern is a book devoted to recycling just as generations before us have, utilizing timeworn textiles with histories of their own. With a little resourcefulness, gentle care, and some creative repurposing, the 35 innovative projects in this book breathe life back into these textiles, refresh their beauty, and create new memories. Whether iT be Granny's well-worn apron, a threadbare family quilt, or a tattered tea towel you picked up at the thrift shop, each of these textiles has a tale to tell. Vintage Made Modern will have you collaborating with makers from the past and continuing stories composed long ago, with you becoming part of the narrative.

JENNIFER CASA has enjoyed making things by hand for as long as she can remember. Her designs are inspired by her children, books and music, travels throughout Europe, and most especially by her love of vintage textiles and patchwork. She strives to breathe new life into timeworn materials that might otherwise simply be cast aside or overlooked. A self-taught designer, Jennifer draws on her decade of teaching experience when developing her extensive line of beginner-friendly sewing and knitting patterns. She lives with her husband and daughters in Northern Ohio nestled between the city and the country.
