About this title


More than 100 stitches, organized by type and illustrated in close-up color photographs, plus a host of patterns and techniques, make this the ultimate luxurious reference for embroiderers. At 256 pages, it's comprehensive and a superb value, filled with ideas for creating a variety of looks, highlights, and ornamental elements. In detail, it covers selecting the best textiles, preparing the fabric, and choosing the tools. There's also a complete "Embroiderer's ABCs" to start beginners off. Featuring such lovely stitches as the daisy, feather, and fishbone outline--all presented in simple steps--these beautiful projects range from Jeweled Buttons to a charming Advent Calendar. A Selection of the Crafters Choice Book Club.


From Booklist:

A stitch-lover's guide to the art of embroidery that is geared to either the novice or the close-to-professional, beginning with necessary materials and ending with finishing recommendations. Stitches are grouped in five categories, depending on the form or the function: outlining, filling, counted, drawn thread, and couching. Each variation on a stitch features complete instructions, including the level of difficulty, suggested threads and fabrics to use, written directions, and step-by-step photographs. Highlighted tips provide good working suggestions, such as the recommendation to practice and rehearse satin stitching to get it right. And more than 20 modern and sophisticated projects showcase particular stitches, with the reader's pick of a complicated, colorful Advent calendar, for example, or an elegant lacelike stole.
