Unique designs combined with beautiful coloured threads and cloths, as well as stylish embellishments, make this book especially attractive for all embroiderers. Stitchers who have dabbled in cross stitch, hardanger and pulled work, as well as beginners and more experienced stitchers are invited to venture into Needleweaving and Embroidery, a combination of well-known embroidery techniques such as drawn thread, needle weaving and surface stitches. Specially selected stitches and finishing touches are sampled in small, useful projects such as bookmarks, greeting cards, pot pourri and glasses bags, table mat and runner, and more. Small and medium sized projects allow skills to develop through the creation of objects which are beautiful and useful, to keep or give as special gifts.

It's great to see traditional techniques used in a more contemporary way. Drawn thread work is often used to imitate lace techniques, but combined with needleweaving and embellished with surface stitches worked in colourful threads and ribbons, it has a much more vibrant personality. Clear photographs and diagrams accompany the step-by-step instructions for all of the techniques, and you can put them all into practice on the projects, which include bookmarks, greetings cards, a table mat etc.* Stitch *
