Art of Crewel Embroidery Reviews
I'm taking surface embroidery lessons from a good friend who has been teaching crewel classes for years. This is one of her favorite books and the favorite of her mother who was also a teacher and one of the first members of the Embroidery Guild of America. This book covers the history of crewel work, wonderful stitch diagrams, use of color and a whole chapter on design units, so you can create your own design. "The Art of Crewel Embroidery" has become my go to book for stitch recommendations, technique and for any any other questions I might have. I highly recommend it!
Informative, and in very good condition considering the age of the book.
I had read the book and wanted embroidery pattern.
This book is about 50 years old and it was in perfect condition when it arrived. The contents are amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed the history of Jacobean Crewelwork. The way it gives tutorials is super. A definite go-to book for what stitch goes where. It will be by my side as a reference for a long time. Lorraine in New York
The Art of Crewel Embroidery gives an in-depth look at the craft. From its classic beginnings to modern times, the book gives the reader a comprehensive understanding of this form. The last part of the book includes detailed, step-by-step explanations of the myriad stitches which compose crewel art. Color charts for blending and traditional designs for copying help everyone from the beginner to the most advanced needlesmith. Easy to read. Entertaining. Very instructional.
This is a really terrific book. If you are looking for background about the crewel work & embroidery, this is a great reference.
