"Hand-Stitched Home could be entitled: Everything You Wanted to Know About Pendelto Wool, And Then Some. Along with some pretty great projects(Nesting Boxes, Jacquard Cube Ottoman, Stylish Shawl), you'll get the history of Pendelton wool and the beginnings of The Arts and Crafts movement, and the Pendelton Woolen Mills company timeline too."
