Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Arts & Crafts Needlepoint is an exquisite collection of Beth Russell's designs based on patterns created by the well-loved Arts & Crafts movement of the late 19th century. Here are 25 period-style designs that are easy to follow. They range from the simple to the more challenging and alternative colorways are often given. Each of the designs is accompanied by clear stitch-by-stitch charts, suggestions for the best needle size and canvas mesh, details of precise yarn requirements, stitch types, and order of work. The practical reference section provides complete information on framing up and basic techniques. Arts & Crafts Needlepoint is both practical and inspirational with many photographs taken in William Morris' former home and National Trust property, Red House in Bexleyheath. Those new to needlepoint will find the instructions simple and clear, while those who are more experienced can use Beth's beautiful patterns to create some of their own unique interpretations.
