As makers, we tend to learn different stitches over time without thinking much about how they relate to one another.
These reusable cards can be stitched through for practicing ( just as children use lacing cards to learn to tie shoes) or used as stencils for transferring grids to fabric.
To simplify learning, the book also includes two plastic stitching cards die-cut with the grids on which every stitch in the book is based.
But when Natalie Chanin and her Alabama Chanin and The School of Making teams began to look at needlework closely, they realized all stitches are based on geometric grid systems—and by using grids as guides, they could make learning stitches, even seemingly elaborate ones, as easy as child’s play.
In The Geometry of Hand-Sewing Chanin presents their breakthrough method, featuring illustrated instructions (for both right- and left-handed stitchers) for more than 100 stitches—from the most basic straight and chain to the more fanciful feather and herringbone; photos of both right and wrong sides; and guidelines for modifying stitches to increase one’s repertoire further.
Throughout TIB’s Geometry, there is ongoing, specific guidance as to the most effective solution and test taking strategies.
Also included are dozens of graphic organizers, which help students understand, remember and recognize the connections between concepts.
TIB’s Geometry includes more than 500 of the right, well-illustrated, carefully worked out and explained proofs and problems.
Recurring patterns, which provide solutions to proofs, are pointed out, explained and illustrated using the visual aids that students find so helpful.
TIB’s author Jo Greig intended this book to level the playing field between the students who have tutors and those that don’t.
Shiletto, the book’s mathematics editor, holds a Ph.

UNLOCK THE SECRETS OF GEOMETRY with THE PRINCETON REVIEW.
That’s why our new High School Unlocked series focuses on giving you a wide range of key techniques to help you tackle subjects like Geometry.
If one method doesn’t “click” for you, you can use an alternative approach to understand the concept or problem, instead of painfully trying the same thing over and over without success.
Along the way, you’ll get plenty of practice, from fully guided examples to independent end-of-chapter drills and test-like samples.
Trust us—unlocking geometric secrets doesn’t have to hurt!With this book, you’ll discover the link between abstract concepts and their real-world applications and build confidence as your skills improve.
• Complex concepts explained in clear, straightforward ways• Walk-throughs of sample problems for all topics• Clear goals and self-assessments to help you pinpoint areas for further review• Step-by-step examples of different ways to approach problems Practice Your Way to Excellence.
• Drills and practice questions in every chapter• Complete answer explanations to boost understanding• ACT- and SAT-like questions for hands-on experience with how Geometry may appear on major examsHigh School Geometry Unlocked covers:• translation, reflection, and rotation• congruence and theorems• the relationship between 2-D and 3-D figures• trigonometry• circles, angles, and arcs• probability• the algebra-geometry connection.
The text is structured to inspire the reader to explore and develop new ideas.
The text then includes solutions to these problems, through which geometric techniques are taught.
In addition to the instructional material, the book contains over 900 problems.
This book can serve as a complete geometry course, and is ideal for students who have mastered basic algebra, such as solving linear equations.
