Crewelwork has a long history, but this book brings the technique right up to date. It mixes contemporary styles with older traditions to give an exciting twist on this enduring and beautiful style of embroidery. Advice on design is given along with working with color and how to plan and stitch a piece of embroidery. This new book includes a guide to framing up and transferring a design onto fabric. There are step-by-step sequences to more than 40 different stitches ranging from filling to outlining stitches, and from accent stitches to new creative ideas.
