By Hand Lookbook 9
In Issue #9 of By Hand Serial, we travel the length and breadth of Nova Scotia, exploring the great variety that it offers. We begin our travels in the urban center of Halifax, then travel to the wineries and family farms of the Annapolis Valley, hike the wild trails of Cape Breton Island, and marvel at the stunningly beautiful seascapes and historic villages of the South Shore. Along the way, we explore Nova Scotia’s history and tradition of rug hooking, meet quilters who blend traditional techniques with modern variations to create art and pictorial quilts, and talk with an artist who fashions delicate jewelry from sea glass found on Nova Scotia’s many beaches, We wander through a maritime yarn store and a fabric store rich with color and texture.
