—YOU CAN WIN EMBROIDERY COMPANION
In Embroidery Companion: Classic Designs for Modern Living Alicia Paulson shares 30 of her dream embroidery projects that can be used to embellish both garments and home decor items. Many of the projects are functional, a few are purely decorative, but all of them can be adapted as desired. The book is organized into three sections—decorative embroidery, counted cross-stitch, and crewelwork—and the projects in each section are accompanied by photos of finished items, stitch charts, templates, pattern pieces, and instructions for finishing. An illustrated stitch dictionary and general sewing section walks you through every stitch and sewing technique used in the book. A list of resources—from historical references to contemporary needlework shops—will help you find further information and sources for all of the supplies you’ll need. Whether you’re a beginning embroiderer or an accomplished needleworker, this book has something for you. The book is a follow-up to Alicia Paulson’s previous embroidery book, Stitched in Time.
