Drawn Thread Embroidery

Valutazione: 4.5 stelle su 54.5/5 (5 recensioni)
Lunghezza: 265 pagine1 ora


Drawn thread embroidery has been practiced and esteemed for centuries, producing the kind of elaborate linen tablecloths, veils, and shawls passed down through generations. You might think it's too complicated, expensive, and time-consuming to do today. But, in fact, it can be done by anyone who is simply handy with a needle; instead of linen you can use many inexpensive modern fabrics; and while there are many meticulous, intricate designs and patterns, this unique book has lots of ideas for quick and easy projects that will lend beauty and drama to your home and wardrobe.

There are separate chapters on all of the well-known drawn thread varieties--needleweaving, reticella, Russian drawn ground, Hedebo, and Hardanger--and even an explanation of how drawn thread techniques can be adapted to the sewing machine.

With over 140 photographs and 97 line drawings, this comprehensive book brings a timeless art into the '90s with as much style as precision.
