Book Description

17 Sep 1992
Vanessa Bell and Duncan Grant presided over the decoration of Charleston in a style which still exerts an influence on interior decoration. Needlepoint was favoured both as a pastime and as a key decorative element and this book includes designs for cushions, rugs, chairseats, hangings, firescreens, a Charleston blotter and Virginia Woolf's glasses case. Stitch-by-stitch colour charts, yarn information and detailed instructions make it easy to recreate the spontaneity of the original tapestries and designs, and suggestions for alternative colourways are also given. Some of the designs are based on the murals and paintings rather than the tapestries and Melinda Cross takes a look at the recurring motifs of boats, shells, flowers and cherubs, many inspired by Charleston and its seaside location. Kits are also available of all the designs.

By Nancyd - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I plan to try a needlework project from the book, but even if I don't it was well worth the read and has led me on to learn more about the Bloomsbury group.

4.0 out of 5 stars TWICE AS MUCH FOR YOUR MONEY 3 Sep 2000
By SUE ROSE SAMUELS - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I HAVE BEEN DELIGHTED WITH THIS BOOK. ALTHOUGH I HAVEN'T USED A PATTERN TO STITCH YET I HAVE READ THE BOOK FROM COVER TO COVER BECAUSE ITS LIKE A VISIT TO THE ARTISTS AND WRITERS THAT STIRRED UP THE IMAGINATION OF THE FIRST YEARS OF THE 2OTH CENTURY. IT SEEMS TO PICK UP WITH THE END OF THE ARTS AND CRAFTS MOVEMENT OF WILLIAM MORRIS' WHICH IS ENJOYING SUCH POPULARITY RIGHT NOW. THIS IS JUST AS INTERESTING
