Title: Crewel & Surface Embroidery
In a fusion of crewel and surface embroidery, Trish Burr has broken boundaries with her unique sense of colour and shading by interpreting a mix of thread painting and Australian wool embroidery. With clear illustrations and step-by-step instructions, the 17 achievable projects use the minimum of stitches to create exciting effects. The skilful blending of wool, silk and cotton guides the beginner and inspires the experienced stitcher to create this unique style of embroidery. The numerous step-by-step photographs, illustrations and row-by-row colour keys make following the projects an effortless task and a joy to stitch. No. of pages:
