Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

Beaders, quilters, and fiber artists will find this book invaluable for its solid technical information about how to apply beads to cloth, resulting in unique creations that will stand the test of time. This guide teaches about bead embroidery stitches; seed, bugle, novelty, and charm beads; woven, nonwoven, and knitted clothes; and Nymo, embroidery, and cotton sewing threads. The four foundation stitches as well as several variations on those stitches are illustrated. In addition, 10 beautiful projects, ranging from simple to complex, give beaders a chance to apply this new skill. Projects include an embellished small bag, an embellished jean jacket pocket, decorative pins, necklaces, and an embellished scarf.

My favorite beaded embroidery book of all time. I bought the book because I've long admired the work of Robin Atkins, one of the co-authors of the book, and I've learned so much from it. It's a fabulous book to use in starting beaded embroidery, and I learn something each time I pick it up. The pictures are so inspiring and the instructions are clear and helpful. Terrific book for beaders and aspiring beaders.
