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.
