From traditional, time-honored techniques to exciting contemporary innovations, here is the art of drawn thread embroidery thoroughly explained and beautifully illustrated with both line drawings and photographs. In addition to the basic techniques, such as ladder and zigzag hems, embroiderers will be delighted to find in-depth coverage of needleweaving, reticella, Russian drawn ground, Hedebo, and Hardanger-and a section on experimental machine work, too. The images get up-close to the exquisite, often delicate, stitching, and the diagrams clearly show the way to bring the needle through the fabric. Sketches give a sense of how the embroidery looks in a garment, and also suggest unique and surprising design ideas. Needleworkers will refer to this guide again and again, finding new inspiration every time.
