     Product Description-Beginner's Guide to Crewel Embroidery
Starting with just four of these stitches, this guide clearly demonstrates, with detailed step-by-step photographs, how to work up
 a complete project. Instructions follow on showing how to stretch and mount your first embroidery. Using further projects she
  helps you build up skills, introducing new stitches in each section. Line drawings accompany each design and are used as a
   guide for the stitches. The designs and colors used are traditional - reminiscent of the embroidery worked by embroiderers
 during the Tudor period, wonderful floral pictures worked in wool and soft colors. The book is a comprehensive introduction to
         this lovely technique and at the same time it offers embroiderers practical help with presentation and finishing.

26 of 26 people found the following review helpful Great BEGINNERS book, November 16, 2005 By Jessica Hunter (Melbourne,
Australia)
  This review is from: Beginner's Guide to Crewel Embroidery (Paperback) I really want to emphasise the title. Very basic but
equally effective and the projects grow quickly. After you master these I would suggest the A-Z of Crewel Emroidery from
Country Bumpkin - more projects and techniques but you'll have the basics already! Definitely worth the price of the book to get
you started.

25 of 25 people found the following review helpful Fantastic beginners book, February 13, 2006 By Metanoia (Adelaide,
Australia)
This review is from: Beginner's Guide to Crewel Embroidery (Paperback) This is definately a fantastic book for beginners
looking at starting this craft. The book gives you a clear description of the tools you should look at obtaining, then with an
embroidery hoop I completed my first piece in two evenings and it looks great! It doesn't have a lot of designs, but has all the
basic stitches (step by step) and plenty of inspiration. One design is worked in three different colour combinations and stitch
styles giving you all the background you need to start off with Crewel Embroidery.

Could be much better, June 15, 2005 By arty girl (San Diego)
This review is from: Beginner's Guide to Crewel Embroidery (Paperback) I bought this book to brush up on my crewel work. I
found the pictures and explanations of the stitches quite poor. One stitch I have forgotten and cannot remember it by the lack of
detail in the instructions. Also, many stitches are missing,a beginner should look for a better book. The pictures of completed
works are very nice and once you learn the stitches should be easy for a beginner. This part is worth the price of the book.
