About the Author:

Alison Holt studied Fine Art, Textiles and Embroidery at Goldsmiths College, London where she experimented with many textile techniques before choosing machine embroidery as a medium. She started to explore her love of gardens and the countryside through embroidery, finding it the perfect vehicle to express the various textures and forms she finds so fascinating. She now teaches machine embroidery, silk painting and surface decoration and runs courses at her studio. She also works to commission, and exhibits her embroideries in Britain and America. Her work is sold to private collectors all over the world. Here are two videos featuring Alison Holt and the techniques she uses. You will find lots more on You Tube.

Review:

"This wonderful book provides a showcase of Alison's exquisite machine embroideries and teaches you how to create beautiful pictures of your own of gardens, flowers, landscapes and woodlands using various combinations of two simple machine stitches." —Sewing World (May 2012)
