The Kew Book of Embroidered Flowers

Temporarily Out Of Stock. More coming soon

This sumptuous and inspiring book, written in association with the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew is a stunning guide to embroidery flowers. the 11 beautiful embroideries are re-workings of botanical artworks from Kews art collection. The designs are mostly worked in long and short stitch and there are projects for beginner to advanced stitchers. Instructions and drawings are very detailed and outstanding photography allows you to clearly see how the stitches are made. All the advice you need on preparation and materials is given and there are re-usable iron on transfers safely stored inside the front pocket, so you can begin work immediately. This is a delightful publication and well worth the the wait. Even if you never do a stitch (which will be difficult as it is so tempting and made to look so easy) you will get so much pleasure just savouring the beauty of the images.
