A Complete Guide to Creative Embroidery' illustrates a wealth of ideas from two internationally renowned embroiderers.

The second, 'Stitched Images' by Jan Beaney, illustrates how to colour fabric and combine this with stitchery. She then looks at ways of interpreting designs using applique, patchwork, quilting, and hand and machine embroidery. The final section gives guidance on selecting a theme.

Expanded and completely revised, this book is the perfect companion for longarm, sit-down, or hand quilters to add a simple but beautiful background filler to their quilting repertoire. Dubbed "McTavishing" after its creator, it has become the most popular new design concept in quilting today. As shown in the extensively illustrated projects, McTavishing may be added to any quilt or garment, from wholecloth to contemporary art quilts, and done by hand, domestic machine, or longarm technique. The book's how-to chapters demonstrate the uses of the McTavishing stitch—as an addition to an open quilt block, in a border, to highlight complex applique, to custom tailor a favorite garment, or as part of a larger overall design—while the accompanying DVDs provide lessons from the author. Accompanied by interviews with accomplished hand and domestic machine quilters, this guide offers readers an unparalleled view of the exciting new quilting process. This edition boasts revised how-to chapters, new graphics, new text, and a simpler teaching method. Additional pages feature new quilts and quilters as well as a new section on modern quilting styles.
