New Items for the Embroiderers' Bookshelf

By December 18, 2012

Two new book reviews have been posted to the Embroiderers' Bookself section.

Brand new and hot off the press is Embroidery Basics: A NeedleKnowledge Book includes a wide variety of embroidery techniques geared to the beginning stitcher.

Learn the basics of surface and freestyle embroidery, counted thread and drawn thread techniques, redwork and more while stitching the 17 projects featuring full-size diagrams and complete instructions. Choose from tablet covers and samplers, purses and ornaments, kitchen linens and more.

Advanced stitchers will enjoy the Beginner's Guide to Drawn Thread Embroidery featuring four projects you can make from start to finish with several designs shown in more than one colorway. Each project combines traditional counted embroidery techniques with contemporary embroidery threads and fibers, colors and decorative embellishments worked on evenweave fabric.

While Drawn Thread Embroidery has been out for several years, it's a great addition to any stitcher's library.

The Embroidery Basics is definitely my style. It sounds like a perfect book for a beginner with a few more challenging things to stretch our skills. There’s more to stitching than stem stitch, huh? I noticed it’s listed as January 2013. Do you know if the local book stores will be carrying it? Seems most book stores don’t stock much in the way of needlework any more.
