Love to Make

July 2016

What a beautiful book this is. It totally inspires you to get hand stitchin. With 20 contemporary designs, all beautifully photographed, you'll want to make them all! We particularly like the Spring flower bag, Forest tea cosy and the Garden Pillow. The stitched motifs and finished projects are shown at the front of the book in full colour, with the instructions, stitch guides, and templates at the back. This book would be an amazing present, but each of the projects would make a beautiful gift. Suitable for all levels of embroiderer.

Beautiful, amazing, gorgeous! There are so many words that I could use to describe this book. I love the fact that it has gone back to designs from the past and brought them back in a way that makes it up to date. The book starts with the most amazing pictures of each of the motifs and how they can be used. Once you have ooed and awed at the pictures you are taking through the steps of making the beautiful items. First it talks you through materials and tools, then moving onto techniques & how to start & finish stitches. Then you move onto the instructions. The instructions take you through everything you will need to know to make each of the projects. These include diagrams and pictures. The also include the motifs and what stitches you will
need to use. I think the pictures and designs speak for themselves. They are exquisite!!! This book would be amazing as a present but each of the projects would make something special for someone.

East Kent Embroiderers Guild

Yumiko was inspired to try combining wool thread with the more usual cotton embroidery floss and, delighted with the results, now presents this beautiful book.  A generous selection of motifs together with suggested projects are gloriously illustrated in colour.  Comprehensive instructions, including lists of all materials required to replicate the projects, are given together with full-size trace-off designs.  An inspiring book for both the new embroiderer and for those with some experience.
