Compelled by the belief that every embroidery has a story waiting to be told, ‘A Passion for Needlework’ is a series of books that tell these stories. Stories of beautiful needlework set in stunning, unique locations.
A Passion for Needlework | The Whitehouse Daylesford is the 4th release in the series.
The Whitehouse Daylesford is a 160-year-old cottage bathed in character and rich in patina. A space masterfully styled with such purposeful intent, every detail exists in anticipation of telling the most wonderful of stories.
