9781863513524: Long and Short Stitch Embroidery: A Collection of Flowers (Milner Craft Series)

In this stunning, color-illustrated collection of floral embroideries, the author of Redouté’s Finest Flowers in Embroidery introduces needleworkers to her unique long- and short-stitch needlepainting” style of portraying flowers like a botanical painter. Five starter projects show novices how to create the illusion of brushwork in thread and use basic techniques, from preparing fabric and transferring designs to blocking and mounting. Sixteen easily achieved but challenging larger projects enable beginners and experts to bring to life meticulously detailed sunflowers, magnolias, bearded irises, an Icelandic poppy, roses, and more. With diagrams, full-size templates, and stitch directions included, this is a must-have for any embroiderer’s library.

Review:

Feb 14 This book is a delight; the embroideries look real and are an inspiration. The flower projects have careful drawings showing how to produce such lifelike pieces. The text is clear and progression easy to follow. The silk shading is carefully explained. After the introduction there are chapters on materials and techniques and 2 pages of tips; the one to step back from the work and study it is very good, we all need to rest our eyes and think about the work in hand. The stitch glossary leads naturally into the tips on improving silk shading and needlepainting. The first 4 projects are simple flower designs where all you've absorbed can be used. Progressively more complex designs test the stitchers ability to put onto operation all the author has explained. Years of teaching are obvious in the progression of projects and gentle text. The colour printing and profusion of flowers is also inspiring. Merseyside Embroiderer's Guild (megonline.co.uk)
