About the Author
Sonia Lyne is a passionate embroiderer; so passionate in fact, that she has embroidery floss coming out of her pores and in danger of looking like one big fluffy dandelion...
Although Sonia fell in love with embroidery at the age of 7, it wasn't until 2011 that she took up the needle and hoop once more and returned to her early passion - her first piece after such a hiatus was an embroidered portrait of her family, as it was then that her enthusiasm was sparked. With her previous experience in the fashion industry, working as a pattern-maker, assistant stylist, buyer and eventually owning her own children's clothing brand, Sonia had the eye and creativity to not only to start designing her own embroideries but to daydream and latterly create teeny tiny embroidery hoops with which to frame her mini designs. Thinking others may wish to create their own small-scale embroidery projects, it was then that she began Dandelyne(TM), a business handmaking and selling tiny hoop kits for budding and experienced stitchers everywhere.
Mini Hoop Embroideries is her first book.
With enough range to appeal to a variety of craft sensibilities, this selection will delight readers and provide ample ideas for library craft groups and all those looking for fresh and personal ways to display their needlework. - Heather Booth Booklist Jan 4, 2019
