It introduces stitches. If you're looking for a getting-started guide for hand embroidery, this is a great book. It introduces stitches, then gives a project to practice.

There are also a couple projects at the end, if you like the floral style. Many of the stitches have great pictures of example work, to show how the stitches can be used to generate texture. Gorgeous, inspires me to make more projects, well organized and well illustrated. I love it.

Your reviews of products are extremely informative and I "eat it up" because I have such minimal knowledge of embroidery beyond cotton floss and a stamped on design; as a Camp Fire girl at age 9 I learned to embroider with cotton floss using the basic stitches. Your book review gives me the information I need to wisely download a learning tool that will guide me to become proficient in doing crewel work.

Reading your daily blog is a treat for me while I eat my morning breakfast and coffee. Wishing you a wonderful day! Thank you again for sharing to help us learn more. This is my kind of book. One that I could come back to over and over. You can always succesfully come back to a solid foundation. A poor one will let you down every time. Your fishy analogy is good. Teach him how to fish and he can help someone else as well as himself.

I like the idea of the design sections. Everything seems to be really well thought out. Including your review. Funny thing happened at the library No, I wasn't playing Cluedo.


Was browsing some embroidery books and on the cover of one was a very appealing crewel embroidery. Flicking the pages here's this section on crewel and blackwork.

Designs etc appealed so borrowed it only to find it was all done with plant seeds!!! There was even convincing goldwork! Seeds were painted for that though.

Thank you so much! This is a nice one. With your help, reading your book reviews I am starting to collect my own library. I also have a question about the book called Church Embroidery and Church Vestments. Are the illustrations black and white? Like in those free PDF files that are available now?

And have you seen a book called — High Fashion in the Church: Larissa — yes, even the original copy of the book is in black and white. The pictures are very clear, but still black and white. Incidentally, there is an image in the book the Good Shepherd that is shown in the process of being embroidered, again, in black and white.

Ages ago, a friend sent me an e-mail of the same exact piece, only it was a colored photo. I never found out where she got it. I haven't heard of the book you mention. Have you seen it? Is it good? Is it something I should look for?

I was looking up the book on Church Embroidery in the net, hoping to see colored pictures and came across this book — High Fashion in the Church. You can find it on site. And I found a site where you can see some pics of the pages. Here is the link http: I don't know how good it is in terms of finding embroidery patterns, but there are some close-ups of vestments. Thought you might be interested. This is my kind of book as there is something so satisfying about creating your own designs.

Thanks Mary. Will put this on my wish list.

What I like about this book is that the pictures are clear enough you can actually see the stitches. All too often you can see the effect of the stitches but not the stitches themselves.

Am just starting to stitch some crewel designs and as a beginner, i have a lot of questions that I think this book can respond to very ably. Particularly regarding "decisions" that arise when stitching various elements of a design — which to stitch first and why, as an example.

Love the idea of the color selection tutorial, too.

This is the first time I've seen this addressed in a book on crewel embroidery. As usual a good review, Mary! For long I only download embroidery books reviwed by you.

Thanks for reviewing this book. Your reviews are always very thorough. I really like that you show pictures of the book. Aloha Mary, Several comments- I love your site. Couldn't believe the questions of the Wed.? I tried to enter the wool giveaway but I'm not the brightest penny in the pool when it comes to using the computer.

You cover this very well in your projects. I went back to the old eccleastical posts- your rooster and esp. It made me realize that a lot can be accomplished in a little time.

Those big projects are do-able.

Thank you for so much teaching and inspiration. I wanted a book that included designs plus the stitches that went with them, and this is one of those — thankyou. And the fact that is teaches you how to design for yourself is invaluable. Well, your positive review was a relief since, coincidentally, I just ordered the book yesterday sight unseen!

Sounds like it was money well-spent.Although I have never done crewel work I ordered this book and plan to give it a try. Will put this on my wish list. Mary Corbet writer and founder.
