The joy of working with a Jacobean shape is that it is a blank canvas waiting to be filled. Using only cotton, rayon and metallic threads, along with beads and crystals, the designs in this book are embroidered onto cotton, linen, taffeta and silk. The techniques, whilst making full use of crewel embroidery stitches, borrow extensively from other styles and other needlecrafts. Needle Lace, Brazilian and Bead Embroidery, Stumpwork and last of all Loom Weaving methods have been incorporated into the embroidery that fills the Jacobean shapes in all of the designs.

Every project is clearly explained with step-by-step instructions and lots of photographs, and the completed embroideries are displayed in ways that are both decorative and functional in the home. Templates of the original designs complete this magnificent source for creative embroidery.

Filled with common sense, this book sets out to show you how to take Jacobean or Crewel embroidery into the 21st century.
