Colour Confidence in Embroidery

by Trish Burr

Based on her experience with long and short stitch shading over the years, the author provides a greater awareness of how colour affects our embroidery and what brings it to life.

Each aspect is clearly illustrated and includes tools for selecting colours that enhance our embroidery, why some shades blend better than others, and the importance of contrast with light and shadow.

Colour Confidence for Embroidery is the first of its kind on this subject and a valuable resource for any embroiderer. Although based on long and short stitch shading the principles could be applied to any surface or counted thread embroidery.
