Book Description

Developed last century, this ground-breaking technique has become integral to the lexicon of Chinese embroidery, enabling the creation of works that rival paintings or photography in their vivid, realistic nature.

In this fabulous new book, her second in the series, Margaret Lee takes tradition 'Su' embroidery to the next level by introducing the history and techniques of Random Stitch Embroidery, along with the art concepts that inform its versatile application.

Featuring nine stunning projects, ranging from a beginner's tutorial through to works of increasing complexity with depictions of different flowers and animals, each piece worked with breathtaking artistry.

Three case studies are also included to further illustrate the potential of this spectacular technique.

About the Author

About Margaret Lee

Margaret Lee is one of the world's leading teachers of oriental embroidery.


This beautiful book for intermediate level embroiderers, is absolutely stunning.

There are nine projects, all designed with intricacy and so much detail.

What I loved about this book, was the in depth history of Chinese embroidery. It is both fascinating and interesting.

Margaret Lee is a skilled embroiderer, and she shares her knowledge in the form of photography and written instructions. Each stitch is carefully placed and the thread colours expertly chosen to give your design highlights and texture.

I find it amazing that as you build each layer of the designs, the birds, butterflies and flowers become a thing of beauty.

Every embroiderer will love this book. There is a lot of information about stitches, and how to get the best effects from your needlework. Every design is simply a work of art.
