5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic book for new and experienced embroiderers
I was recommended this book by a friend and I'm very glad I bought it. It gives you the history of crewel and the significance of all the creatures and flowers traditionally included in crewel pieces. The book seamlessly guides you through the process of creating your own work (with patterns provided)
