There is no need to spend a fortune on fabric, threads and other items in order to learn creative embroidery. With a few carefully-chosen materials, Dilys Blackburn shows the reader how to design and complete a piece of embroidery from the start. Taking it step-by-step, learning stitches and other techniques, and exploring the use of colour, the reader will build skills in both stitchery and design. By reading Creative Embroidery and carrying out the exercises, readers will learn such diverse techniques as basic stitching, adding texture, simple fabric painting, quilting, cutwork and Jacobean embroidery.
The book is illustrated with colour photographs and numerous line diagrams.
