About this title

Synopsis:

Lou Gartner is probably the best known professional needlepoint designer in the US, and the author of the best-selling book Needlepoint Design, a first of its kind which taught modern techniques of transferring patterns to canvas yourself. This new book is a collection of 80+ examples of his most recent work. You can transfer these designs to canvas yourself for a fraction of the cost of buying them ready to stitch. His own working drawings are supplied for you to photostat to size and trace onto canvas. If desired, you can then paint the canvas with indelible colors before you stitch it. The designs are also shown in finished needlepoint, most of them in full color - providing an excellent guide not only to painting your canvas but to stitching it as well. More Needlepoint Design is a sourcebook that will not soon be outgrown and which encourages beginners no less than experienced needlepointers to put designs on canvas themselves - including, by all means, making their own variations, not only copies. The range of patterns is very broad - from a glasses case with a stylized rope-knot motif that can be traced directly from the printed page, to naturalistic underwater seascapes for rugs that are certainly only for experts. In between is a progression of patterns to suit every skill level. Two chapters, on tracing and painting and on the use of wool colors in stitching, are planned especially to advance your skills, and another, on designing rugs, contains information vital for anyone starting so important a project. While not a repeat of all the basic how-to information published in the first Needlepoint Design, the most important things you need to know are clearly summarized, and valuable information is provided about new products now on the market. Most of the space has been devoted to presenting as many designs as possible as clearly as possible. The result is a fascinating, useful, and wonderfully varied survey of one of the finest talents in needlepoint.
