Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a must for embroiderers and those with an interest in how the way was paved for contemporary textile work. There are fascinating details of the women who were prepared to experiment and take embroidery forward, plus all the information on how they did it, with beautiful photographs and helpful illustrations of all the stitches involved. I can't praise it highly enough.

Format: Hardcover
This is outstanding! It is a gripping read, and full of fascinating snippets about the embroiderers of the past, the techniques and products that they used, their stitches and designs. If you are into embroidery you MUST buy this book. I also bought the 19th Century one by the same author - it is just as wonderful. I am going to get the whole series.
