I purchased this as a gift to myself.Primarily as a recourse for victorian sewing, my new venture. This is an outstanding book. The colour photos take you thru all areas of embroidery.From equipment thru stitches & completed projects.Including the 4 different types of embroidery, some which were unfamiliar. The tools needed to complete each project ,complete with little tips. very easy to read.A good purchase for beginners or experienced sewers.

I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to do any kind of embroidery. I purchased it because I do bead embroidery and I feel it had a lot of helpful stitches. Easy to understand.

This book is everything you'd expect of one written by Christen Brown: a little bit of history, a thorough explanation of supplies, precise step-by-step instructions, detailed photographs that accompany the instructions, and beautiful work to inspire your muse. In Embroidered And Embellished, Christen explores embroidery from four perspective; traditional embroidery, silk ribbon embroidery, raised & textured embroidery, and bead embroidery. Each of those specialties has its own chapter, plus the book contains additional chapters devoted to embroidery thread and ribbons, beads and embellishments, and fabric, laces and trims. Christen also takes the time to explain the idiosyncrasies of the various types of threads and ribbons so that you can learn to embroider with confidence, making this book a valuable resource for both the beginner and experienced embroiderer. Each of the four sections includes two projects, each of which include a materials list, cutting guide, the patterns, and a stich guide. Also included is an extensive gallery section with plenty of eye candy. If you've been searching for a "how to" embroidery guide, this is your book!

Embroidered and Embellished covers four forms of embroidery, traditional, silk ribbon, raised and textured, and bead embroidery. Each of these chapters covers about 20 stitches, that are then used in two projects. The first is a simple project, which is great for a beginner student, the second is a bit more involved and certainly would attract a more advanced student. The gallery section is full of ideas for all levels of experience. If you love embroidery then this book is certainly one that should be included in your library.

After seeing the tangletons pictured on the preview page 3, I just knew I had to have the book. I anxiously awaited its delivery so I could learn the technique. Can you imagine my dismay to find that the construction of the tangletons was not even covered in the book?
