If your looking for Needlepoint talk, visit our blog and find interesting topics and helpful tips.
This is an English language book published in Japan in 1995. This is not a beginner's book. The designs here are lovely but would require a stitcher of intermediate or advanced skill to do justice to them.
This is a special book. Not just your usual designs.
The patterns are all flowers, the designs are classic florals, there is not much Japanese design influence in them. There are single flowers, buds, sprays and bouquets. There are wonderfully stitched and very beautiful.
The templates are in black & white but all the other pictures or stitch instruction pictures are in full color. There is a finished picture of each project.
The are 12 projects in the Flower Embroidery 1 section and 18 in the Flower Embroidery 2 part. There is a chapter on Ribbon Embroidery Basics and a chapter on Antique Ribbon Embroidery. Again, this is not a beginner's book.
The author graduated from Kuwazawa Design Institute and specializes in needlework, including embroidery.
This is a lovely book, published by Nihon Vogue-Sha in 1995. It is a glossy cover paperbound book with 87 pages.
This book is in excellent, almost new condition. There is a small area on the back where I had trouble removing a sticker of some kind (beware stickers on books).
