If your looking for Needlepoint talk, visit our blog and find interesting topics and helpful tips.
Jan Messant is a very well-known and popular writer of needlwork books. I list several of here other books here included her current book, Embroidered Potraits and several of her out-of-print books.
I know, the title is Embroiderer's Workbook but there is very little here that is not easily adaptable to Needlepoint. There are some very interesting concepts and instruction in The Embroiderer's Workbook.
The book begins with the basics of Pettern, then Color, Drawing and Design Development, Fabrics, Stitches, Counted Thread 3 Techniques, Themes and Challenges, Display and Presentation.
This is not a book for beginner's or novice stitchers but anyone with even moiderate stitching experience will fnd this book out of the ordinary and inspiring.
Great stuff here.
The Embroiderer's Workbook is a glossy cover paperbound book first published in Great Britain by B.T. Batsford in 1988. The first US edition was published by St Martin's Press 1989. It has 96 pages.
