The Anchor Embroidery Series offers the perfect introduction to popular embroidery techniques. The decorative and creative possibilities of freestyle embroidery are explored to the fullest in this indispensable book. Starting by covering basic techniques such as selecting fabrics and threads, transferring an embroidery design to fabric, and working with a hoop or frame, it goes on to explain 48 stitches in step-by-step detail. These are listed alphabetically, from Antwerp Edging to Wheatear Stitch, for ease. It is often said that an embroiderer can create beautiful work from just a few stitches; however the 16 new and original designs included show just how effective the varied selection of stitches can be to add texture to a design and take embroidery into another dimension. Celebration designs, fantastic flowers and lovely landscapes will inspire the embroiderer to begin extending their stitch repertoire today.
