Publisher Comments:

One look at these pages and you know that this isn't your grandmother's crewel, but a hip, contemporary update that will have everyone reaching for a needle and thread. And these projects are easy, too, because crewel has no counting, no grids, and no cross-stitch--just beautiful free-form embroidery. Dive right in, guided by a basics chapter that explains how to do the different stitches, ranging from French knots to laid filling. Novices will swiftly move on to the 30 practice designs, all accompanied by easy-to-follow instructions and diagrams, and a dozen lovely projects. Make a card or keepsake scrapbook embellished with stitched motifs, colorful totes, table runners, and an elegant tryptich.

Cathy from Olympia, Washington, March 1, 2008 (view all comments by Cathy from Olympia, Washington)
Wow! This book has it all-- a brief history of crewelwork, basic instructions for the beginner (including threading a needle!), a how-to for 16 crewel stitches, a trendy "gallery" of 30 designs to try out these stitches, and 15 fun projects including an eyelet hole lampshade and a lavender eye pillow (I'm thinking these would make great Mother's Day and birthday gifts!). The projects include a complete list of materials needed (down to scissors, straight pins and hand sewing needle). It's been YEARS (decades?) since I've tried any crewel work, but this very attractive book has me ready to try my hand at it again. The only problem is, which project shall I try first???
