An easy way to get into this popular craft, with instructions, templates and contemporary projects that will soon get you going.
The traditional craft of embroidery has gained a new excitement as a new generation of stitchers bring contemporary style to subjects like houseplants and modern interiors.

Brand-new step-by-step photography makes the whole process easy: and after only a couple of happy days with your needle and thread, you'll find that you're making designs to be proud of.
