Hello bargello - this long stitch needlepoint technique is having a bit of a moment, and it's easy to see why. Tina Francis' Modern Bargello champions this bold and colourful craft, featuring 15 home decor projects with a retra vibe and a feeling of movement. Easy to stitch and 2020 fresh - we like.


Amazon

I recently got this book and love the look of the projects, I'm looking forward to making the cover project as well as the seat pads. It has clear pictures and instructions that should help me, a complete novice.

First of all I am loving Tina Francis's eye for colour, the projects in this book are certainly cheerful, a much welcome change from the uniform grey decor we see these days. The clear instruction at the start of the book set out what materials are required, all of which I am pleased to say are easily and cheaply available, making this a technique accessible to all.

There is a wide variety of projects in the book but I think they could all be easily adapted to make whatever you fancied. I am already wondering about turning the bracelet pattern into curtain tie backs. The final project in particular is beautiful and would make a gorgeous addition to any room.

Overall I would say this book is perfect for young and old alike, as well as for inexperienced sewers. Its also a lovely way to use up some of my ever expanding wool stash!

Postcard Reviews

Bargello always looks beautiful and, to me, has often seemed difficult to do, but once you know the process it is actually so much easier than you think.

Tina Francis brings is bring Bargello back. Her brightly coloured yarn projects are beautiful and can add a decorative and unique vibe to your home. There are 15 projects to create, from bangles to boxes. The instructions are simple and clear and once you get the hang of it you will be designing your very own patterns and styles.

You will not need much to start your Bargello designs, just some yarn, canvas and a needle and you are all set to go.

I loved the authors comments at the start of each project, she gives you an insight into how she came up with the design and offers encouragement.
