Embroidery, Quilting, Sewing & Embellishment Books - "The Kew Book of Nature Samplers" Trish Burr (2)

"The Kew Book of Nature Samplers" Trish Burr (2) This exquisite and substantial hardback book has 10 different embroidery projects and reusable iron-on transfers. The individual motifs could also be used to customise clothing and homewares, or for smaller pictures.

It features a starter project that introduces the reader to the most commonly used stitches, including long-and-short stitch, split stitch, satin stitch, bullions and French knots, then nine full sampler projects. The samplers feature a vast array of fauna and flora, including butterflies, bugs, birds, a rabbit and a hedgehog; lotuses, foxgloves, poppies, toadstools, and numerous wildflowers.

The book explains all the stitches needed, and gives thorough advice on preparation and choosing fabrics and threads - including a handy thread conversion chart. All the projects are shown step-by-step, with an order of work diagram given where appropriate. The templates are included at full size.

This stunning yet practical book is a must-have for anyone interested in capturing the intricacy of nature in thread.
