This book will, with good drawings, charts and photos inspire you to make cushions, bedcovers, pictures, carpets, wallhangings, chaircovers, firescreens, screens, bedhangings and much more, all in the style of true Tudor. The projects are worked on evenweave cotton and linen, lightweight silk and cotton fabric and canvas. Working methods are to name a few: tent stitch, blackwork, crewelwork, the use of fancy braids, laid work, florentine work, stumpwork and more.
There's the usual chapters on how to work the projects, stating materials, working methods, tools, finishing, stitch glossary and how to scale down the projects to 1/24 scale. I only wish I had lots and lots of doll's houses to show off all these embroidered projects of mine.

It is difficult to find any faults with this book! Pam Warner is, for me, the best in her field and the miniature 1/12th scale world has many excellent artists and crafts people to compete with! The instructions are clear and simple, but the finished result will amaze you. Each project is clearly illustrated with chart and photo (coloured). Instructions, suggested colours to use and a picture of the article in situ all help. The introduction includes a brief history and designs of the period. A lovely book not just to browse but to inspire! Sorry, I can't write any more, I have just spotted a super little lady's bag on page 132 that I must have a go at...........

Instructions are easy to follow, there are lots of things to make. Great for the beginner and the more experienced miniaturist.

Utterly fantastic. Plan to do several of the projects for my modern day dollhouse so they look like they've been passed down through the family that owns it . Have countless other ideas for the various projects in the book .
