About this title


Drawing from a wide range of international sources, this book presents ethnic and traditional design ideas from Switzerland to Tahiti, and incorporates them into an array of pretty and practical items. The book is divided, chapter by chapter, into nine main areas of the world. Each chapter contains at least four original projects with detailed instructions and easy-to-use charts. Jan Eaton has contributed articles to many magazines such as "Prima" and "Women's Realm" and is also the author of "Creative Guide to Cross-stitch Embroidery".

From Library Journal:

Eaton (The Complete Stitch Encyclopedia, LJ 9/1/86) incorporates ethnic and traditional embroidery forms into contemporary craft projects. Previously published in Great Britain in 1992, this title offers 300 color illustrations of instructions, stitching charts, and finished embroideries for more than 50 projects. Chapters, divided into main areas of the world, contain three to five activities. Various international sources have inspired the embroideries shown here, which include Chinese bed linens, Maori traycloth, Thai purses, Aboriginal creatures pictures, Balkan place settings, and various Eastern European peasant borders. A review of embroidery techniques and sewing details for project completion is offered in the final chapter. While even novice cross-stitchers will be able to accomplish the patterns, the culturally influenced patterns will inspire the more proficient. For embroidery collections in public libraries.
