Full Description

Over 40 needle weaving techniques and patterns in one handy stitch book by renowned embroiderer Hazel Blomkamp. Working from numerous traditional loom weaving graphs and patterns, Hazel Blomkamp has updated, modified and documented 42 techniques, providing you with the basic weaving methods needed to create stunning embroidered pieces. Beginning with general information and tips on the weaving technique, Hazels book then dives straight into the stitches, which she breaks down into detailed, helpful steps. Each weaving pattern is accompanied by a clear diagram and at least one photographed example of one of Hazels beautiful woven pieces, giving you that extra visual reference as you work. All the stitches have been detailed on one side of the page only, allowing you to place your magnetic cross-stitch board underneath. You can then use the magnetic rulers that come with the board to mark the row that you are working on, making the instructions easier to follow. The spine is wire-bound, allowing the pages to lie flat while you work, and the books notebook-size fits perfectly in a work bag for easy transportation while stitching on the go. With all the stitches needed for needle weaving embroidery at their fingertips, both new and experienced embroiderers will find inspiration from this invaluable resource.
