- We can order this
A striking follow-up to her successful first book, Heirloom Embroidery, which focuses on traditional embroidery passed down through generations, Love Stitching takes a more modern approach, with the use of bright colours and strong shapes in a series of graphic, bold designs. Capturing a mix of nostalgia, romance, patriotism, exuberance and celebration, the funky pop art feel of the Love Stitching collection will inspire homemakers of all ages to get stitching. Inspired by some of Jan's favourite things, the projects are arranged in five thematic chapters: `Love & Hearts', `In the Country', `Flying the Flag', and `Beside the Sea'. Suitable for beginners and established embroiderers alike, the projects are easy to re-create, with step-by-step instructions, design templates and clear explanations of techniques and stitches used. Using a mixture of colourful wool felts, and both plain and gingham cottons and linens, the stunning designs in Love Stitching will be a welcome addition to any home, whether it's modern, traditional or country in style.
