This is a new book and contains helpful information AND projects for Canvaswork, Applique, Silk Shading and Goldwork! This book gives you a general overview of the materials and equipment you’ll need and then gives you basic techniques. There are about 15 stitches covered in the beginning of the book that you’ll be using for the techniques and projects included.
This is a GREAT beginner’s book for canvaswork and has continental (tent) stitched projects and one Bargello stitched. You’ll learn to read a graph and place the stitches on your canvas.
However, I find it more useful for silk shading and goldwork beginners as the great color photos and the step by step instructions are very nice. For this low price, this is a great book for those wanting a basic start in these 4 applications.
