Overview

Eye-catching beads of all types, lovely fabric that’s stitched and embroidered, and stupendous projects: this collection combines all three, and will charm needleworkers looking for something new. All the basics are splendidly covered and illustrated here, from beading supplies to the necessary stitches to the care and cleaning of the finished item. What will really dazzle sewers and beaders are the quality and variety of the items they can make: a spectacular gift bag festooned with pearls, seed beads, and bugle beads; a range of pillows and place mats in a rainbow of colors; a quilted throw, customized with velveteen appliqués; and much more.

A Selection of the Crafters Choice Book Club.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Small beads combined with traditional embroidery stitches are currently very popular as trim on clothing and accessories. Graphic artist Gorder (Greeting Cards in an Afternoon) provides very tastefully designed projects for adding beaded embroidery to purchased items such as pillows and purses. Stitching basics and tips for care and laundering are given. Recommended for public library crafts collections.
