The traditional craft of embroidery has gained a new excitement as a new generation of stitchers bring contemporary style to subjects like houseplants and modern interiors. I am delighted to tell you more about Embroidery: Learn in a Weekend. This smart little book, written with beginners in mind, perfectly captures that aesthetic and gives you the skills you need to succeed.
Embroidery: Learn in a Weekend
Embroidery covers the materials you need to get going, simple introductions to the key stitches, and ten contemporary projects that evolve in complexity. Each project has a template to be copied, enabling the reader to get started straight away and achieve great results in a short time. Brand-new step-by-step photography makes the whole process easy: and after only a couple of happy days with your needle and thread, you’ll find that you’re making designs to be proud of.
Alisha and Roisin McDonnell built Sew Botanical, their Etsy store, where they sell their own beautiful embroidery kits, which carries hundreds of rave reviews for their contemporary designs.
With straightforward introductions to embroidery’s key stitches and ten contemporary projects to follow, this smart little book gives you the skills you need to succeed.
