An excellent and enriching resource for creative embroiderers! — Review by James A. Cox
Overall Rating
1000 New Embroidery Designs is a pattern book for intermediate to advanced embroiderers. Familiarity with the fundamentals of the craft is generally presumed, although a brief introduction does refresh the reader's memory on stitch symbols, as well as how to make basic stitches (including back stitch, right hand stitch, chain stitch, chevron stitch, cretan stitch, and many more). The overwhelming majority of 1000 New Embroidery Designs is devoted entirely to wordless stitch diagrams, on grid backgrounds for ease of assessment. Each design can be applied quilts or any other type of decorative embroidery. An excellent and enriching resource for creative embroiderers! (Posted on 9/15/14)
Creative inspiration — Review by Patricia Mesker
Overall Rating
Whether you are new at embroidery or looking to expand your existing skills, 1000 New Embroidery Designs is the book to open for creative inspiration. Author Joan Waldman uses an easy-to-understand grid approach, rather than text and photographs, to illustrate her embroidery designs. The book begins with diagrams of the basic embroidery stitches and builds upon them to create hundreds of stitch combinations to embellish crazy quilts and other hand-sewing projects. It concludes with a variety of exquisite patterns for creating picture frames and pieced quilt blocks. This is a terrific resource for today’s embroiderer. (Posted on 9/6/14)
