Join Crafter's Choice for a great deal on GOLDWORK EMBROIDERY

From its fascinating history to its contemporary uses, learn all there is to know about goldwork, then stitch your way to 15 of the most elegant, opulent projects you’ve ever seen! This ancient embroidery method, which uses metallic floss in every color not just gold, is not as difficult to learn as you might think.

The book describes all the stitches and techniques you’ll need to know via 15 outstanding projects. Most are standalone works of art you’ll want to frame; others can be adapted into brooches, embellishments for pillows, and more. Stitch a single white poppy with silver and dark ink meal threads or embroider an ornamental gold medallion on a burgundy background. Create a fashionable portrait of a woman using assorted metal threads and shimmering gold spangle beads.

For each design, there are step-by-step instructions, a materials guide, templates, and color photos. What’s more, photos of historical goldwork pieces from museums around the world are there to entice and inspire your stitching. Softcover, 208 pages, 81/4" x 11"
