Crewel Embroidery A Practical Guide by Shelagh Amor

The aim of this book is to give confidence to the novice embroiderer and to provide a design source for the more experienced embroiderer. As with all embroidery techniques, the working of crewel embroidery is meant to be an enjoyable pursuit. It is adaptable to a wide range of purposes such as fashion items, soft furnishings and wall hangings. This book demonstrates how surface stitches are used in crewel work and explains some rules which will help the embroiderer to achieve the best results. Shelagh Amor has presented a comprehensive guide to Crewel Embroidery. She guides the embroiderer through colour choices and design to make an exciting piece of work. There is something here for all Crewel embroiderers, from the beginner to the advanced. Relaunch of the previous edition of Crewel Embroidery (9781863513890).

About the Author

Shelagh Amor grew up in England, where she pursued a career in accounting before marrying and settling in Australia. Although she had taken up a needle at an early age, it wasn't until after the birth of her second child that she discovered the Embroiderers' Guild and, through it, the many facets of the art of embroidery. For Shelagh, embroidery became a passion and, with time, she developed skills in crewel embroidery. Shelagh used her skills to co-ordinate classes for the Embroiderers' Guild and to promote embroidery in her local community. From 1984 to 1986 she served as President of the Embroiderers' Guild, Victoria. In twenty years of teaching, Shelagh has established a reputation for her meticulous attention to detail and finish.
