The Kew Book of Embroidered Nature Samplers (Folder edition)

£25.00

10 stunning projects with reusable iron-on transfers by Trish Burr

Pre-order
Book Description

This exquisite book, a follow-up to the massively successful book of embroidered flowers in the same series, is written by needlework expert Trish Burr in association with The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

It features nine full projects, and a starter project that introduces the reader to the most commonly used stitches in the samplers to follow, including long and short stitch, split stitch, satin stitch, bullions and French knots. The samplers feature a vast array of fauna and flora, including butterflies, bugs, birds, a rabbit and a hedgehog; lotuses, foxgloves, poppies, toadstools, and numerous wildflowers.

The book explains all the stitches needed, and gives thorough advice on preparation and choosing fabrics and threads including a handy thread conversion chart. All the projects are shown step-by-step, with an order of work diagram given where appropriate.

This stunning yet practical book is a must-have for anyone interested in capturing the intricacy of nature in thread.

All the reusable iron-on transfers needed are kept safely together with the book in an attractive hardback folder. The enclosed reusable iron-on transfer papers offer embroiderers a fast and accurate method of transferring the designs - the transfers simply need ironing on to fabric so that the reader can start embroidering straight away. The templates are also included at full size at the back of the book.
