Summary

The book introduces the reader to many different stitchery techniques from simple cross stitch to intricate pulled threadwork. Some of the techniques are useful for making decorative borders, while others are good for adding spot designs, monograms and lettering, and applying beads and sequins. Readers will find out how to use these traditional techniques to create attractive home accessories and a wide range of fashionable garments. They will also be taught how the simplest of sewing machines can create embroidered pieces in a fraction of the time it takes to do it by hand.
