Ah, October! Time to cozy up with a great craft book and learn something new! This season's books from STC Craft| Melanie Falick are just the thing to scratch that creative itch! We’re especially excited about Heather Ross Prints, the new offering from creative powerhouse, Heather Ross.

Prints is an empowering resource, walking you through the fascinating steps of creating your own digital textile designs. Heather uses her trademark humor and whimsical sense of style to thoroughly explain the process of using Photoshop to design unique prints. She also includes easy-to-follow instructions for twenty awesome projects, from custom wallpaper, to notebooks, to nightgowns! Plus, the book comes with a DVD (for both Macs and PCs) which contains the artwork to reproduce 50 of Heather’s most beloved prints on your own. Heather is a great teacher with a real gift for demystifying sophisticated projects, making them approachable and fun!

STC's other exciting titles this autumn include Kaffe Fasset Dreaming in Color, a behind-the-scenes autobiography of the beloved knitwear and textile designer, and Gertie’s New Book For Better Sewing, a fabulous reference book for garment sewing packed with lessons on couture techniques and customization. You'll love the vintage fashion and Gertie's spirited, modern style!
