Summary

Summary

"Emphasis here is on a mastery of the basics; no pictures and text are spared to ensure that stitchers clearly understand the material needs and the more than 22 stitches, a broader array than the regular running, couching, and lazy daisy varieties. A dozen or so projects are presented...including a shopping list for...embellishments and a paragraph or two filled with ideas. These pages are meant to instruct and inspire."-- Booklist.

Booklist Review

A few steps up from traditional embroidery, stitching with silk ribbon requires a deft hand and a designer's eye. Ciotti provides readers with a great deal of visual stimulation as well as step-by-step instructions, although occasionally an awkward English translation can slightly derail the flow of directions. The emphasis here is on a mastery of the basics; no pictures and text are spared to ensure that stitchers clearly understand the material needs--such as ribbons, fabrics, and needles--and the more than 22 stitches, a broader array than the regular running, couching, and lazy daisy varieties. A dozen or so projects are presented in a generic fashion, including a shopping list for, say, nightgown embellishments and a paragraph or two filled with ideas. These pages are meant to instruct and inspire, not to be slavishly followed. --Barbara Jacobs
