5.0 out of 5 stars Crewel Twists Review, 31 Oct 2012

This review is from: Crewel Twists: Fresh Ideas for Jacobean Embroidery (Paperback)
Embroidering in the Jacobean fashion is what I enjoy most. Prior to purchasing this book, I have attended classes and watched a DVD of the technique and completed my first project. I bought this book as I thought it would provide me with easy visual access to the techniques.
I feel this is not a starter book for the complete novice, as there is a need to go back and forth between stitch instruction and the photographic image. While it is easy for the experienced stitcher to know what they are looking at stitch wise on the design, I feel the novice may have a little more difficulity. This book tells one what to do, but does not show you how to do it. Having said that, the graphics are excellent making it easy to see the stitch direction while sewing.
The colour photos provide ample opportunity to go with the suggested colour schemes or to change them to ones own colour blend.
This is a lovely book for the embroiderer to use as inspiration in their own work.
