and I am delighted with its content. Only one tiny disappointment - I was hoping for a bigger chart for the 'Enterprise' but that is just personal preference. a great book for the novice stitcher / trek fan as well as the more experienced embroiderer!
I would say most are basic maybe a couple that are a bit more tricky but nothing that couldn't be easily accomplished in time by a complete beginner. The instructions that go with each pattern are really well written and something you don't see often and would definitely help out a novice even if they were a bit OTT of the order you had to stitch in...
All the colours are listed in DMC and it's nice to see that the colour pallettes have been kept to a minimum on each pattern and the colours on one pattern are reused in another.
Love the Federation sampler but so pleased to see the Klingon one included! Can't wait to use the pIqaD alphabet!
Just a few things I found disappointing namely the focus on TOS/TNG patterns. There is one DS9 pattern, and no Voyager/Enterprise patterns except the "Captains" towel. As a younger fan who grew up with those shows I was really disappointed with that. Especially the author's condescending note "DS9 might be one of the lesser-known series, but the people who really like really like it.". Lesser known? I don't think so....
Also while the book is printed in glorious glossy colour, the patterns have had to be squeezed onto the page. So larger patterns are tiny and impossible to work off while the smaller designs have been blown up to fit the page. Also, the grid lines they have chosen to print cuts off shortly outside the pattern which makes it harder to count when working out the whole design etc. Definitely have to work off of photocopies but that's fine.Read more ›
An enjoyable job!
