Whether you are a beginner or more experienced, any stitching project, no matter how simple, can be enhanced by a well-chosen colour palette, however, many people are nervous or even scared of colour. Textile designer Karen Barbe regularly teaches embroidery workshops and knows first-hand the fears and frustrations of beginners - as well as accomplished crafters - when starting a new project. Karen makes choosing and creating colour palettes a fun and enjoyable part of the design process. Guides the reader through colour theory as well as choosing and using colour more instinctively. Includes five stiching projects that will encourage the reader to explore colour and build confidence through exercise and experiment. Photographs are accompanied by stitching illustrations and step-by-step photographs for the colour choosing process as well as stitching projects.
