Overview

Both practical and inspiring, Jan Eaton's Cross Stitch is a complete illustrated guide to this enduringly popular form of hand embroidery. In the first chapter, Eaton traces the history of the craft, illustrating it with lovely examples of period samplers and antique textiles from her own collection. The project designs are inspired by the changing seasons and cover varying levels of ability. The reader can learn and progress from easy beginner designs, such as Christmas tree decorations, to larger and more challenging projects, including an exquisite sampler stitched in pure silk threads. Each project is fully explained and charted, and the finished pieces are generously illustrated in color photos. Eaton also fully explains the techniques of cross stitch and offers guidance in making up embroideries into pieces that will be treasured. Jan Eaton has published more than a dozen books, including the acclaimed Mary Thomas' Dictionary of Embroidery Stitches and Around the World in Cross Stitch.

Editorial Reviews

Internet Book Watch
Jan Eaton draws upon her many years of needlework experience to share her considerable expertise in Cross Stitch, the newest entry in The Crowood Press "The Art of Crafts" series. Readers are provided with a comprehensive, profusely illustrated, practical guide to the craft of the Cross Stitch. In addition to a history of cross stitch embroidery, Cross Stitch offers the needlecrafter with fifteen beautiful projects and is embellished with a chapter devoted to "Finishing Touches". Cross Stitch is further enhanced with a suggested list of additional readings, a listing of useful addresses, and an index. Cross Stitch is a thoroughly "user friendly" and much appreciated contribution to the needlecraft instruction and reference shelf.
