Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"If you have ever wanted to monogram anything—linen for a bride, a teddy bear for a baby, a special greeting card—here is a book filled with ideas and projects."  —MyShelf.com

"This book is well laid out and gives clear instructions for the method of work which is useful for both beginners and the more experienced embroiderer."  —West Country Embroiderer's

If you have ever wanted to monogram anything—linen for a bride, a teddy bear for a baby, a special greeting card—here is a book filled with ideas and projects.
Library Journal
These three books present beautifully designed projects using surface embroidery and silk ribbon. The flower fairies are elaborate stitched pictorial collages applied to a printed background that is available from the author's web site. Each script alphabet letter is an individual project and much simpler to execute. Embellished with ribbon flowers and filling stitches, they are perfect for decorating linens and clothing. Van Niekerk, who runs embroidery shops in Cape Town, South Africa, can supply threads and other materials for these projects.
