Rezension: Carefully worked examples are shown from design to completion in this new book on an old style of embroidery. The young author has studied at the Royal School of Needlework and spent some years working to gain experience with different firms. The clear sections on equipment, materials and the order of work make this a joy and inspiration. The stitches are divided into two sections - couching and cutwork - with a series of clear photographs explaining each stage. There are also helpful hints on handling and positioning threads. Familiar stitches are included in the section on combining techniques. The book has a spiral binding, which makes it lie completely flat for easy reference.-Megonline.co.uk RSN Goldwork and RSN Whitework: Both these books, although covering traditional needle work techniques, cover quite different approaches, with whitework looking very pure and pared down and the goldwork appearing very sumptuous and colourful. Whitework is introduced from its historical roots, but the feeling throughout the book is that, while retaining some of this history in the stitching and processes of working, the movement is into the contemporary period. Many designs have a modern feel to them, and there is some reworking of traditional pieces into up to date designs. The work in Goldwork is much denser, with more variety in the stitches and embellishments. The work looks more traditional, but there are a few pictures towards the end, where techniques are combined and more contemporary pieces showcased. Both books contain a huge selection of stitches and techniques, with an Order of Work given in both for a successful outcome. They are both well illustrated with clear instructions, and would act as both a good introduction and way of moving forward for anyone working in either discipline.-Workshop On The Web Have the 140 years of Royal School of Needlework knowledge and expertise at your fingertips with this new addition to the Essential Stitch Guide range. Goldwork by Helen McCook is an invaluable reference for any stitcher at home whether a beginner or proficient in the technique. An extensive range of effects and stitches in Goldwork are fully explained such as the application of purls and plate, couching effects and Or Nue. There is a thorough introduction to the fabric and threads, framing up the work, getting started and design advice. The book is a vital companion to anyone with a love of Goldwork or the desire to try it for the very first time.-New Stitches Not only is Helen McCook a technically accomplished goldworker, as you might expect of a graduate of the RSN, but she brings a fresh approach to this ancient craft. Helen finds that a 'particularly intriguing facet to the art of metal-thread embroidery is the is the fact that it is an ever changing art form, not only in style of design but also ... the very thread with which you work is made to change. The tarnishing process ... might be said to define in some way goldwork as "the study of elegant decay"'. Certainly, Helen's work is a study in elegance. Part of the team chosen to work on the Duchess of Cambridge's wedding dress, Helen's meticulous approach is displayed throughout this book.-Stitch
