It has been over a decade since I wrote a book called Kids Embroidery. It was published by STC in 2004 but sadly it is now out of print (and selling for a high price, I must say on Amazon). I snatched up a few and have packaged Kids Embroidery with some embroidery floss and a needle as a special gift for you to give to a friend you might want to inspire to stitch.
The cost is $19.95 plus shipping.
Here are some highlights from this book - one of my very favorites.
Over 50 how-to illustrations Instructions for needlepoint, cross stitch and 17 free from embroidery stitches
22 templates for transferring to fabric
5 needlepoint projects
1 cross stitch project
17 free form embroidery projects
instructions for printing on fabric
inspirational illustrations and info on traditional samplers and embroidery around the world
how-to host an embroidery party
lush photographs including girls and boys stitching
If you order before Christmas, I will throw in an embroidery needle and a couple skeins of embroidery floss for your little friend to start stitching with. I'll even sign the book to your friend if you like.
Here's the link to my website to order. If you want the book signed to someone in particular, please add a note to the order form. NOTE: I do not ship books to Canada or Overseas. Sorry. Postage is more than the book.
Stitch on! Here are some highlight photos from this great book.
