20 People-Inspired Embroideries Using Modern Hand-Stitching Techniques
Professional embroiderer Jo Dixey has created 20 projects to inspire and challenge both those new to embroidery as well as the more experience stitcher looking to take their skills further. Each project introduces new embroidery stitches and techniques and is accompanied by comprehensive step-by-step photographs. The projects range from small embroidered cards to more complex wall art; simple applique for a scarf to an embroidered jacket -- all based on the theme of people. Templates of the images to stitch are provided for photocopying and there is a photo gallery of all the stitches covered in the book.
