Product Information

In this collection of Embroidery Stitch designs, the author has placed before those artists who are interested in needlecraft an exposition of the most useful and artistic stitches that has formed a part of her own work during several years' study and practice of Art Embroidery. Some of these will be familiar to needle-artists; others will serve to exemplify how, in process of working, fresh stitches may be evolved from old ones; or how, when originality gains ground entirely new stitches become apparent and workable.

A point somewhat overlooked in Art Embroidery is the fact that each separate stitch is a design in itself. If this principle be fully recognised, the necessity for careful and systematic study of the forms and functions of Embroidery Stitches will immediately become obvious to the student and worker.

Original published in the 1910s, this book is planned with a view to facilitating reference, and to affording immediate conception of the intimate connection between illustration and explanation. To attain this end, the 200 designs are presented in alphabetical order; the illustrations are placed in uniform spaces throughout the volume, two on each page; and in each case the description appears opposite its corresponding design.
