Needlecraft has undergone a revolution in recent years, with the advent of new materials, techniques and of course, the electric sewing machine. This book covers many areas of decorative needlework, explaining the techniques involved and, with illustrations featuring the work of various craftspeople, aiming to inspire readers to create their own works of art. The book is divided into three main sections: hand embroidery, machine embroidery, and patchwork, applique and quilting. Step-by-step photographs and drawings explain both the individual stitches - surface embroidery, canvaswork, smocking and needlelace - and the skills required. Also included are instructions for hand quilting, free machine stitchery, cut-back applique, and how to draw one's own patterns.
