Hand embroidery is one of the most written about subjects of all the textile mediums – there have been so many books written over the years, each in varying. But since I was updating my Embroidery Book List the other day, I took Bible is an excellent stitch dictionary to have on hand for reference. Category: Hand Embroidery Books 22 - RSN Book of Embroidery: Huge, in More Ways than One 13 - Hand-Stitched Crazy Patchwork – Book Review.
I learned to embroider when I was a kid, when everyone was really into cross stitch remember the '80s? Eventually, I migrated to surface embroidery, teaching myself with whatever I could get my hands on All Rights Reserved. This is HUGE. And then I started reading it from cover to cover , and I had to do that a few times before I felt I could put together a sensible review that I think is a fair evaluation of the book. Here are my thoughts on this encyclopedic volume devoted to all kinds of embroidery techniques. Mastering the Art of Embroidery is divided into two sections.
Clear stitch directions for beginners only. Published by the esteemed Royal School of Needlework , this colourful book offers an inspirational introduction to the most popular hand embroidery techniques. The four sections of the book are split into silk shading, crewel work including jacobean, blackwork and gold work, all introduced with a historical overview and accompanying stitch glossary.
This is a great book for those wanting to begin their journey as well as those looking to expand their knowledge of the basics with clear illustrations showing different stitches and techniques throughout.
Only negative is that the stitch glossary could be more comprehensive. Written by left-hander Yvette Stanton as a solution to her frustration of having to mentally flip right-handed embroidery illustrations, this is the ultimate resource for any left handed stitcher. Alongside these are comparisons of the difference between right-handed and left-handed techniques for use as a teaching tool. Carefully explained with helpful diagrams and photos.
Includes some unusual stitches such as nun stitch, parma stitch, spiral trellis and Breton stitch.
The fact that this is aimed at right-handed stitchers is not us usual but the content is so detailed that it was also worth a mention in this list. Let us know by leaving a comment below. Sam is the co-founder of TextileArtist. Agree wholeheartedly about the Constance Howard book.
I think with books about embroidery stitches the old ones are definitely the best. Thanks Caroline. It can be tricky to find them in a good condition and at a reasonable price though. I love the left-handers companion, use it all the time. The Constance Howard book is great. Hi Sam, thank you very much for mentioning both my left- and right-handed stitch dictionaries.

Throughout the instructional pages, there are also little tips encircled in embroidery hoops.
You can see that the instructional content is brief and basic. Finally, each chapter ends with a couple page profile on a specific needlework designer or textile artist. The next chapter is called Counted Surface Embroidery. I admit I chuckled. The counted embroidery section is set up like the surface embroidery section. Chapter three covers embellishment, and under this category we find beadwork, a beadwork primer, ribbon embroidery, and a profile.
Other Chapters in Section One The other chapters and their subsections under hand embroidery include the following: Chapter 4: Stumpwork, which includes raised and detached elements, figures, a figures primer, needlelace, and a profile. Chapter 5: Whitework, which covers pulled work, Broderie Anglaise and Richelieu, drawn thread work, and a profile. And Chapter 6: Three-Dimensional Embroidery.
So the chapter covers smocking, constructing a box, tassels, hand quilting, and a profile. Section One is followed by a very brief Section Two, with twenty-odd pages devoted to machine embroidery, including free motion embroidery and digital embroidery, with profiles in both.
Pros 1. Mastering the Art of Embroidery is jam-packed with visuals — many contemporary examples of all kinds of embroidery from contributors. There are pictures of embroidery everywhere in the book! There are some interesting techniques included herein that are not always found in other general embroidery books, like how to make and embellish tassels, how to construct a box, and a tutorial on loom beading.
