Description - Stitchcraft: An Embroidery Book of Simple Stitches and Peculiar Patterns by Gayla Partridge

Step inside a world of arcane imagery and rich esoteric symbolism in Stitchcraft- An Embroidery Book of Simple Stitches and Peculiar Patterns.

30 intricate pieces, designed using a combination of nine basic stitches
Insight from the author on the creation of each original piece
30 basic patterns to get the reader started creating their own version of the pieces

Through extraordinary, stylized photography and detailed close-ups of her designs, readers learn about Partridge's sources of inspiration, technique, and modern twists on an age-old craft. The intricate pieces in Stitchcraft are entirely achievable with basic embroidery stitches and easy-to-follow instructions, enchanting embroidery beginners and experts alike.
