Notes and Editorial Reviews
Knit one, purl oneā€¦and press play on this album of specially picked classical works, stitched together to create a musical tapestry of pieces to sew and knit to. Lay out a pattern for a New Dress with Waxman, thread The Sewing Machine with Ibert, cross and twist the bobbins on the lace pillow with Johann Strauss I and prime The Darning-Needle with Boris Tchaikovsky. From the sublime Fantasia on Greensleeves by Vaughan Williams to the delightful Valse from Coppélia by Delibes, this playlist is the perfect accompaniment to needlework.
