Publisher Comments:

From food and fashion to home furnishings and architecture, Scandinavian style has come to dominate the global design sphere. Highlighting traditional Swedish embroidery techniques and featuring easy instruction, Scandinavian Stitch Craft will be an inspiration to modern crafters. Through thirty inspiring projects, Holmberg highlights many of Swedens traditional embroidery stitches and uses them in new and exciting combinations. The projects can be used to make new buys more personal, to embroider clothes that you already have in your wardrobe, or to brighten up a flea-market bargain. Also included is information about materials used, tips and tricks, descriptions of the various stitches, and removable pattern templates which can be used to create your own works.

Synopsis:

30 embroidery projects using traditional Scandinavian stitch craft in modern ways.
