Miniature Embroidery by Margaret Major
Book DescriptionFollowing the huge success of her first book, "Miniature Embroidered Patchwork: Projects in 1/12 Scale", Margaret Major has now written this comprehensive introduction to the exquisite art of miniature embroidery for the 1/12th scale dolls' house. It covers everything you need to know about the fabrics, threads, embroidery frames, needles, scissors, lights and magnifying aids that are used for this fascinating pastime, plus it provides thorough guidance on how to read embroidery charts for: Florentine work; Cross stitch; Half-cross stitch; Backstitch; Blackwork; Running stitch; Tent stitch; Rhodes stitch; and Gobelin stitch. The stitches are accompanied by 30 beautiful projects to complete, enabling newcomers to the craft to become practised at the stitches as they progress through the book: Stools; Cushions; Chests; Samplers; Wall hangings; Pictures; Bed covers; Cot cover; Hall runners; Carpets; Firescreens; and Bell-pulls.
