Book Description

31 Jan 2002 Practical Handbook
From traditional hand stitching to contemporary machine embroidery and every technique in between, this guide contains all you need to be a proficient embroiderer. It begins with a concise list of the materials and equipment needed as well as the different ways to prepare the fabric to be embroidered. Step-by-step photographs give guidance on each different type of stitch whether embroidered by machine or by hand, and there are more challenging projects such as beadwork or broderie anglaise for the more experienced seamstress. With over 500 colour photographs and clear, precise instructions, this book should provide you with the means to master embroidery with confidence. "Practical Home Handbooks" cover every topic from health and cookery to popular hobbies and leisure interests. Each book includes step-by-step photographs and easy-to-follow instructions. 4

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't Be Without This One......... 14 May 2003
Format:Paperback
As always Dorothy Wood has done it again. If you know Dorothy's work and the way she presents any of her books then you'll know how informative and easy to follow they are. On the other hand you may have never of heard of her. So let me take this opportunity of saying what a brilliant book this is. As I said beforehand, she, as always, starts at the very beginning of her subject (in this case Embroidery Skills & Techniques) and takes you through step by step, each step having a full explination with no jargon and fantastic pictures alongside so she actually shows you what she talking about and doing, so there's no way you have to imagine what's supposed to be going on, you have the pictures right there to compare your work. She explains what each stitch is used for, where it can be used and explains and shows you how to do it.
This book will take you through from the materials and equipment, different embroidery stiches, needlelace, beadwork, hand stitched applique to machine embroidery and information about the sewing machine itself. A very worthwhile book beautifully illustrated and above all easy to follow. An inexpensive book worth it's weight in gold!!!

I saw this book in the library and loved how it showed all the different types of needles and feet for the machine. It also had a large amount of hand sewn stitches for embroidery.
