This review is from: Needle Painting Embroidery: Fresh Ideas For Beginners (Paperback)
Well worth the wait! This new title ties in perfectly with Trish's DVD, introducing the techniques of long and short stitch. Trish Burr is a self-taught embroiderer. This book is the perfect introduction for a beginner to master the techniques of long and short stitch, but also challenging enough to satisfy the experienced embroiderer, who is perhaps seeking a smaller project to make into a gift or card. There are fifteen designs including a detailed introduction to long and short stitch and a handy stitch glossary. The photos are clear and combined with clear instructions, that take you through each stage. You will also find the practice motifs that Trish demonstrated exceptionally well in her DVD. All the projects use DMC or Anchor threads (DMC colours listed but you can easily get a conversion chart). My heartfelt thanks to Trish for sharing this wonderful technique with us and for keeping embroidery alive! Happy stitching!
