Newsletter 63, Summer 06

This book is a 'must' for anyone interested in bead embroidery. It is very clear in its instructions, and apart from actual beading the book contains comprehensive details of requirements, stitches, construction and making up. Their basics are clearly written and illustrated (how could we forget how to start and finish off threads) and how often do we transgress? and put a knot on the reverse of the material. If you have any doubts refer to page 76. We are told how to make a twisted cord, also see page 60 for a different beaded tassel. Another point is the emphasis on practice pieces - by doing this we can obtain perfection, and also find out 'we can do it' - a useful adjunct for any beginner.
