A beautifully illustrated, step-by-step guide for beginners to the exquisite art of goldwork embroidery.

Goldwork is the art of embroidery with metal threads, and has been prized by religious orders and royal households throughout history for its opulence and intricate stitchery. Those who love traditional embroidery can now learn the essential techniques and create their own exquisite embroideries with this easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide.

Through careful and detailed instruction, Ruth Chamberlin teaches you how to stitch beautiful goldwork motifs, which together form an impressive sampler to show off their work. Covering a range of designs, stitches and techniques, with templates throughout and examples of the author's inspiring work, this book provides a firm basis on which to build future projects and continue on your goldwork journey.

This popular and enduring book by Ruth Chamberlin now returns as a Search Press Classic, with the addition of a foreword by the illustrious embroiderer and world-renowned blogger Mary Corbet (www.needlenthread.com).
