Crewel Twists (specialty embroidery) #1925
Whether you refer to it as crewel or Jacobean, this free form of surface embroidery has been around for centuries and is still popular today. In this book Hazel Blomkamp uses a wide selection of materials to update techniques and inspire embroiderers to explore whilst working loosely within the confines of crewel work styles. She shows needle artists how to be creative with fabric, threads, beads and alternative stitches, borrowing techniques from other forms of needlework, and still producing a product that is typical of the crewel or Jacobean style of embroidery. Soft cover, 144 pages.
