Overview

Drawing on her instinctive sense of understated colour and style, Mary Norden has created an original collection of embroidery designs for soft furnishings using wool. By experimenting with different stitches and ways of combining different fabrics with wool, she has created twenty designs, with twenty variations, that are strong, contemporary, fresh, and somethimes even witty - the perfect complement to today's demand for clean and textured design.

With many sources of inspiration as their starting point - ornate Jacobean crewelwork, simple Indian embroidery and graphic and organic shapes - Mary's timeless designs enable you to transform quite ordinary pieces of fabric into fashionable home furnishings.

Full instructions, templates, wool quantities and colours, as well as colour illustrations clarifying stitch techniques, are given for all the projects, to guide both the beginner and confident stitcher through to a perfect finish. A final section provides illustrated instructions on the eighteen decorative stitches featured, and explains how to select wools and fabrics, and how to transfer a design and care for the finished piece. A conversion chart gives you the choice of using either DMC or Appleton embroidery wools.
