Jane Rainbow shows how to create a selection of beautiful designs, using ten basic stitches. Clear step-by-step photographs illustrate how to develop embroidery skills, and how to create wonderful floral pictures which are worked in wool and soft colours.

Starting with just four of these stitches, Jane clearly demonstrates, with detailed step-by-step photographs, how to work up a complete project. Instructions follow on showing how to stretch and mount your first embroidery. Using further projects she helps you build up skills, introducing new stitches in each section. Line drawings accompany each design and are used as a guide for the stitches. The designs and colours used are traditional - reminiscent of the embroidery worked by embroiderers during the Tudor period, wonderful floral pictures worked in wool and soft colours.

The book is a comprehensive introduction to this lovely technique and at the same time it offers embroiderers practical help with presentation and finishing.

Jane Rainbow has a fairly high profile. She runs a successful business from her home in Stow-on-the-Wold, selling kits and her video.
