Creative Sampler Embroidery takes a fresh approach to this traditional art. Using stitches and colours, it is full of ideas for capturing today’s world with a sampler, still using age-old designs but interpreting them with beautiful images and new techniques.

Topics covered include: Stitches – the samplers are based around the favoured cross-stitch, but other stitches are suggested to give embroideries a rich texture. Colour – the mixing and blending of colours to create a wide range of effects and a harmonious design. Designs – a great variety of motifs are included from Suffolk sheep to sunflower, country house to cornstook. Composition – five larger projects are included. Step-by-by instructions are given with threads to use on both Aida and Evenweave cloth. Fully illustrated with colour photographs and easy-to-follow graphs.
