|An inspired collection of old and new needlepoint patterns from Britain's top designers.|
Designer Needlepoint brings together twenty-five (25) of the best designs specially commissioned by Hugh Ehrman over the past eight years, and the result is an inspired collection of old and new patterns that will delight Ehrman enthusiasts and make many new friends.
The designs reflect an approach to needlepoint that is both fresh and traditional using familiar motifs like flowers, birds, leaves and shells. From the formal garden scenes of Edwin Belchamber and the sixteenth-century harvesters of the Victoria and Albert Museum to the glorious flower arrangements of Kaffe Fassett and the exotic birds of the Royal School of Needlework, there is a wealth of inviting color and interest that will have novices and experienced embroiderers alike reaching for their needles.
And there is no shortage of advice on materials, stitches, transferring designs and making-up in Eleanor Van Zandt's informative introduction. Suggestions on possible uses for your needlepoint range fro cushions and chair seats to footstools, a work box top, even a rug, where the specially commissioned photographs show how well embroidery designs fit into the modern home, adding their particular grace and charm.
