Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Combining beads with embroidery stitches on clothing and accessories has a long tradition that has seen a revival in recent years. This book collects projects mostly by Australian designers who use traditional embroidery stitches with beads and sequins to quite lovely effect. Some have three-dimensional elements similar to stumpwork. Fashion designer King (Designer Techniques: Couture Tips for Home Sewing) presents design motifs stitched entirely of beads and sequins that may be added to one's clothing. The motifs include flowers, borders, and allover filling stitches. Both books are recommended for public library crafts collections. -Library Journal October 15, 2006
