Description - Miniature Embroidery by Margaret Major
Following 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.

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.
