Library Journal - Library JournalIn this publication, originating in Australia, embroidered borders of delicate flowers are created by massing together simple stitches. Detailed explanations, measurements in both metric and inches, and step-by-step drawings are given for such items as a detachable collar, a jewelry roll, and embroidered buttons, all of which are illustrated in the 16 pages of color illustrations found in two inserts. Some projects involve additional machine sewing while others embellish store-bought items, and, occasionally, the lists of materials call for types of embroidery threads that may be difficult to find, but most embroiderers will be undaunted by the challenge of re-creating these techniques. Sweet and old-fashioned, this embroidery style could be combined well with heirloom sewing techniques. Recommended for public libraries serving embroiderers.-- Judith Yankielun Lind, Roseland Free P.L., N.J.
