This celebration of centuries-old hand embroidery technique puts accurate duplication of the stitches and patterns within reach of any willing embroiderer. It includes drawn thread work, Richelieu cutwork, pulled work, and shadow work, as well as Broderie Anglaise, and Mountmellick techniques-all with detailed diagrams, color photographs, and simple directions. There's a tool and equipment list, material buying suggestions, a history of each stitch, and an illustrated glossary. The stitches are shown both in diagrams and within finished pieces. While the legacy of ancient embroidery styles is honored, the book also features a survey of the most exciting new experimental techniques being used today, which can produce unusual and impressive results.
