Adventures in Needlework

I recently purchased the book "Adventures in Needlework" by Jessica Aldred and Emily Peacock. I was looking for a book with hand applique instructions. The diagrams, pictures and instructions are excellent. I am looking forward to trying a small applique project before my next class.

The other techniques covered in the book are canvaswork (needlepoint), silk shading and goldwork. The instructions are well written, a great reference from how to frame up a slate frame to how to finish each project. The mounting instructions are easy to follow and your framer will love you for finishing your projects this way and you will save money too.

A must have book for every embroiderer's library.

Thank you Jessica and Emily!
