'A Complete Guide to Creative Embroidery' illustrates a wealth of ideas from two internationally renowned embroiderers.

It is divided into two sections: the first, 'Design to Embroider' by Jean Littlejohn develops ideas showing that anyone can design as well as decorate fabric and paper for embroidery. The second, 'Stitched Images' by Jan Beaney, illustrates how to colour fabric and combine this with stitchery. She then looks at ways of interpreting designs using appliqué, patchwork, quilting, and hand and machine embroidery. The final section gives guidance on selecting a theme. With the combined talents of two innovative embroiderers, this highly illustrated book is an inspiring source of colour, pattern, design, stitch and texture which will encourage embroiderers to create their own exciting and rewarding pieces.
