A very good book, lots of ideas taking Crewel work in a slightly different direction by using other threads etc. Well worth spending time looking into and practicing some of the fresh ideas. I will certainly be using some of the designs and different ways of using stitches giving a fresh approach to my work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jacobean embroidery, 22 Jan. 2014
This review is from: Crewel Twists: Fresh Ideas for Jacobean Embroidery (Paperback)
This is a fabulous book; it gives instructions for creating several Jacobean style pictures - which could be used for cushions or bags, etc.

As well as making the projects by following the instructions, it would be easy to use the ideas to make your own picture.

even for a practical embroiderer it stimulated me to try crewel work which I had not tackled before...with helpful ,easy to follow instructions, well presented...the "slant " using beads was a good idea.
Good value
