Description - Needleweaving and Embroidery by Effie Mitrofanis
Unique designs combined with beautiful coloured threads and cloths, as well as stylish embellishments, make this book especially attractive for all embroiderers. Stitchers who have dabbled in cross stitch, hardanger and pulled work, as well as beginners and more experienced stitchers are invited to venture into Needleweaving and Embroidery, a combination of well-known embroidery techniques such as drawn thread, needle weaving and surface stitches. Specially selected stitches and finishing touches are sampled in small, useful projects such as bookmarks, greeting cards, pot pourri and glasses bags, table mat and runner, and more. Small and medium sized projects allow skills to develop through the creation of objects which are beautiful and useful, to keep or give as special gifts.
