Product Description

About the Author

Barbara Hammet is a designer who began her career teaching arts and crafts and history of art. Embroidery provided her with the opportunity to combine this knowledge with her interest in the colours and textures of fabrics and threads. She runs her own design business, Wessex Embroidery Collection, selling kits based on historic designs. This is her third book to be published by David & Charles: the earlier two are The Art of William Morris and Art Nouveau Cross Stitch. Barbara lives in Winchester. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I have quite a few Celtic Cross Stitch books and this is one of the best. Not only are the charts clear and large enough to see, at the back of the book there is a small library of charts which can be used individually. It gives you the inspiration to have a go at designing yourself.

There are quite a few books on Celtic designs for needlework, but this is one of the best. The author explains the original Celtic source for each design (a particular page of the Book of Darrow, for instance), and how she has adapted shapes and colours from the original setting. There is a very useful 'library' of individual motifs, but also many complete projects, from small designs that could be done in an evening to a superb firescreen, pictures, pillows, small gifts etc. The charts are clear and easy to follow. I have stitched a number of these designs now, and have always been very pleased with the result. Definitely a winner!

I have had this book for quite sometime and others have been collected also but this is the only one I continualy use. It is a great book of designs. It not only has the bigger designs at the start but in the back is a collection of various designs of differnt sizes. The charts are in colour and clear to read. I have only once used the colours suggested so they are very versatile.

Overall great book, well worth the purchase.

This is a lovely publication, packed with intricate and beautiful cross stitch designs in the Celtic tradition. I've spent ages looking at it already and it is truly inspiring for a cross stitch design which I am currently working on.
