Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"If you have ever hesitated before attempting to draw to stitch a portrait, or been frustrated by drawing faces or hands – even if you have never picked up a pencil before – then this book is the ideal place to start." —Embroidery magazine (November 2012)

"The extensive photography is extremely clear and sometimes brutally close-up, but essential for the reader to understand the execution of the techniques and their effects on the fabric. As ever with Jan Messent's books, this is a remarkable publication and one that many embroiderers will find an inspirational addition to their bookshelves." —New Stitches (November 2012)

The cover of this book shows exactly what I was looking for when I purchased it. When I received the book, I was greatly disappointed because the content is about making cloth dolls/faces and painting on the faces; not about embroidering portraits. No "Look Inside" was provided so I could not see a glimpse of the contents. Had there been, I would not have purchased the book.
