Part of the bestselling A-Z series, this title explores the handiest stitches and techniques for use in the practice of wool embroidery.
Clear step-by-step instructions lead the reader through the stitches themselves; and beautiful designs created by readers of Inspirations magazines in Australia aid the reader in putting the techniques into practice.
A great accompaniment and follow-on to the A-Z of Embroidery Stitches.

The A-Z Series is being reprinted as classics and form a veritable library of easy-to-use comprehensive guides that have stood the test of time. This one is all about the stitches used in wool embroidery and how you can incorporate them into stitch designs. Instructions are clear with numerous stitches shown in photos plus tips and more. 60 stitches are shown with step-by-step instructions. The book is further enhanced with project designs that you can follow. The designs are mainly of flowers or animals and use a variety of stitches. I like the Crewel Sampler by Jean Harry and the Pansy by Carolyn Pearce. The patterns for all 29 designs are given at the back of the book.* yarnsandfabrics.co.uk *
Continuing the excellent A-Z series this latest title covers all aspects of the craft of embroidery using soft wool threads. At least fifty stitch techniques are presented followed by a further fifty designs, which can be stitched or adapted as desired using the full-size patterns given. Step-by-step instructions in glorious colour photography make this a useful and inspiring book for all embroiderers.* East Kent Embroiderers Guild *
