From Alisha and Roisin McDonnell, the entrepreneurs behind Sew Botanical, Embroidery: Learn in a Weekend isan easy way to get into this popular craft—with instructions, templates, and contemporary projects that will guide you along the way.
The traditional craft of embroidery has become more exciting as a new generation of stitchers bring contemporary style to subjects such as houseplants and modern interiors. This smart little book, written with beginners in mind, perfectly captures that aesthetic and gives readers the skills they need to succeed.
Embroidery covers the materials you need to get going, offers simple introductions to the key stitches, and includes ten contemporary projects that evolve in complexity. Each project has a template to be copied, enabling the reader to get started straight away and achieve great results in a short time. Specially commissioned step-by-step photography makes the whole process easy, and after only a couple of days with your needle and thread, you’ll find that you’re making designs to show off.
