Book Description

Embroidery fans will love this new collection of designs from author of Modern Folk Embroidery, Nancy Nicholson. This collection features 20 projects embellished with wool embroidery - a modern take on traditional crewel embroidery, which is enjoying a huge renaissance. Crewel embroidery is done using 2ply wool and stitched onto linen: Nancy shows how to get beautiful results using different types of yarn and fabric. Readers will love getting fast results and busting their yarn stashes to create the stunning projects. As well as the projects, Nancy has created easy-to-follow diagrams showing how to do all the necessary embroidery stitches in the collection, making it a fantastic reference tool for stitchers.
