Follow an expert crewel instructor’s special techniques, starting with the simplest stitches, including stem, chain, split, long and short, French knot, and trellis filling. The complete process unfolds, from selecting and transferring your designs to final framing and finishing. Put it all together with ten original floral projects you can apply to clothing, from fashion to children’s wear, as well as soft furnishings and framed wall hangings.
