18th Century Embroidery Techniques
By Gail Marsh
This book is beautiful and covers a multitude if stitches including:
- Tambour and Chain
- Hollie point
- Working with Metal threads and Spangles
I mean, we could just list the chapter index, but she bases her choice of stitches on items she’s found in the museums so there are photos of the original garments and then a talk through how to do that particular technique.
This is very simple but a very effective talk through how to splendour up your jacket or gown with these original methods.
