This introduction to modern creative embroidery takes the beginner through all the stages of designing and executing an embroidered panel: from sources of design, making and squaring up designs, choosing background materials, threads and needles, frames, color, applique, and textures to stretching and mounting. The section on stitches has clear how-to-do-it diagrams and examples of the stitches used in designs by many artists. There is also a valuable section of questions to ask oneself when the design is not working out as planned. Six professional artists explain how they approach their own work and the aspects of this art form that most excite them.
