In this stunning book, Jill Carter shows the embroiderer how to make 16 beautiful pieces for special occasions for friends and family - treasure to be passed down from generation to generation. This book opens with a comprehensive chapter on the range of traditional embroidery techniques used - canvas work, hardanger, heirloom sewing and surface embroidery. This includes a glossary of over 50 stitches with step-by-step illustrations and instructions plus useful information on mounting, framing and stretching. The embroiderer will be seduced by the use of lace in heirloom sewing, the wealth of stitches in canvas work, the beauty of surface embroidery and the geometric designs of Hardanger. The 16 desirable projects fall into four sections - Weddings, New beginnings, Special Occasions and Christmas. Each is accompanied by colour photographs, step-by-step instructions, an easy-to-follow chart and essential making-up directions. Jill Carter provides innovative ideas and suggestions on how to adapt or personalise the projects in a unique way. You can choose from a collection which includes a wedding cushion in canvas work, a beautiful christening gown with simple surface embroidery and heirloom sewing and a striking canvas work Christmas stocking.
