Overview

This comprehensive guide will appeal to the home and professional dressmaker, as well as anyone interested in creative embroidery. Illustrated in full colour throughout with helpful diagrams and sumptuous photographs, the book progresses from the fundamentals – such as right and wrong sides of sequins and basic stitches and their applications – to more advanced techniques such as making fringes, tassels and motifs. To develop creative expression using these skills, there is extensive guidance on designing, making and transferring patterns to fabric. A gallery of the author’s and his students’ own work provides an inspiring reference.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Mall shops and boutiques are full of clothing and accessories embellished with beads and sequins. Instead of paying fancy prices for imports, needleworkers can take part in the trend by adding decorations to purchased or handmade items. Gourley and Talbott (Art of Seed Beading) cover basic beading stitches with step-by-step projects for easily worked up beaded edgings and pictorial motifs. The results are tasteful and stylish. Levy, a former figure skater and designer of skating costumes, takes a more theatrical approach, combining beads and sequins for flashier effect. In addition to detailed instructions for application, he supplies full-size design templates for copying. Both books are quite trendy and should be welcome in public libraries.
