Overview

In this gloriously illustrated book, master embroiderer Young Yang Chung shows readers how to "paint with a needle"—embroidering in silk using centuries-old East Asian techniques and traditions. A world-renowned artist and gifted teacher, Young Yang Chung provides detailed step-by-step instructions for 19 original projects—ranging from wall hangings to a cell-phone case—that are suitable for all levels from beginner to advanced. The full-color photographs of centuries-old pieces that demonstrate the various stitchery techniques are of such fine quality that Painting with a Needle stands as an art treasury as well as a "how-to" book.

In her fascinating text, Chung takes readers on a journey through time as she places silk embroidery in an East Asian historical and sociological context. Tips on how to get started, including the types of tools and materials required, a list of suppliers, a section on starting and finishing methods, and a glossary of embroidery terms in three languages (Chinese, Korean, and Japanes) make this the ultimate book on silk embroidery.


About the Author:
Young Yang Chung, world-renowned master embroiderer, was born and raised in Korea, where she founded The International Embroidery School and established Korea's first vocational embroidery center. She now lives in the United States, dividing her time between New York City and Larchmont, New York. Marie Campbell is President of The Embroiderers' Guild of America.
