This large paperback will help anyone new to this style of embroidery to get started and develop the correct method of approach. There are sections on equipment, transferring designs, use of frames and colour. Many beginners find the latter difficult; this author is very supportive. There is a gradual progression in the designs, with clear instructions on where to begin and which stitch to use. A fool-proof method for using a scroll pattern is explained in simple steps and with clear diagrams. Pages of patterns for creating your own design are included. A hand drawn stitch glossary is near the back. An explanation of how to block completed pieces means they will not languish at the back of your cupboards. The author has an understanding of nervous stitchers by gently taking them through the stages to produce pleasing finished results. All embroiders can benefit from this book; although it was published a few years ago it is worth including in your personal collection.-Megonline.co.ukVom Verlag:
