Needle painting Embroidery: Fresh Ideas for Beginners
Title: Needle painting Embroidery: Fresh Ideas for Beginners
Trish Burr

Being a self-taught embroiderer Trish understands the need for clear instructions and has spent many hours exploring the simplest way to present project instructions so that they are simple to follow. With comprehensive thread listings, numerous step-by-step photographs, clear illustrations and row-by-row instructions, all the designs presented in this book use readily obtainable DMC/Anchor stranded cotton.

This book provides 15 embroidery projects from the numerous kits that Trish Burr has been providing by mail order for some years - a variety of embroideries featuring traditional flowers, and two small, colourful and delightful South African birds, the little bee-eater and the raquet-tailed troller.

The embroideries are divided into three levels, from complete beginner through to more intermediate embroiderers, and will also be helpful to those with some experience who are looking for smaller designs to use for gifts. Each level is carefully designed to take you onto the next stage of needle painting and includes all aspects of the technique, plus an introduction to long and short stitch and its variations - basic, curved, different shapes and feathers.
