The Anchor book of Needlecraft Techniques by Carroll & Brown
Fashions may change, but whether you want to embellish an existing item because embroidery is "in," or knit a traditional Fair Isle pattern from scratch, Needlecraft Techniques will always help you create beautiful items successfully. Whether you are a novice or a professional, there are times when following patterns, when the instructions are unclear. This encyclopaedic approach is an invaluable reference long after the skills have been mastered. The clear, step-by-step photographs, coupled with concise, informative text, show every technique in great detail, successfully leading you through any uncertainty. A quick look at bookshop shelves will show there are many pattern books available but no other reference book has such a comprehensive content, including tricks of the trade, short-cuts and tips from the experts on getting best results every time. Each chapter is devoted to a specific handicraft with information on equipment and materials. Stitch glossaries, from basic stitches to advanced, will give you a wealth of ideas and inspire you to create something individual, either for yourself or your home. Once you've made a piece, you'll find essential tips for washing, storing, and caring for your hand-made items so that they stay in top condition. The home decorating programmes on TV that skim over these techniques, such as making fringes or tassels, should create a ready audience for Needlecraft Techniques. - Over 1000 step-by-step photographs of techniques and stitch glossaries - Crafts can be quickly mastered - A complete course in all the major areas of needlecraft - An indispensable reference of techniques, stitches, and advice - Essential no matter what your level of expertise - Helps make up the gaps in other books - Inspires you with confidence to try new crafts too
