Description


Hazel Blomkamp has compiled over 40 key needle lace embroidery techniques in one handy and portable stitch book.

Working from the Encyclopedia of Needlework published in the late 19th century by the famous T.H. de Dillmont, and based on several stitches Dillmont used, Hazel has devised a book which thoroughly outlines and breaks down the basic needle lace techniques you need to create beautiful embroidered pieces.

Each of the 40+ stitches is explained with a clear diagram and step-by-step instructions. All have been detailed on one side of the page only, allowing you to place a magnetic cross-stitch board underneath. You can then use the magnetic rulers that come with the board to mark the row that you are working on, making the instructions easier to follow. The book is wire-bound, allowing the pages to lie flat while you work, and the books notebook-size fits perfectly in a work bag for easy transportation while stitching on the go.

With all the stitches needed for needle lace hand embroidery at their fingertips, both new and experienced embroiderers will find inspiration from this invaluable resource.

She has been designing for the past 18 years. Peferring to design projects which appear to be traditional, she pushes the boundaries by introducing other forms of needlecraft into traditional techniques, exploring further in everything that she does. Along with designing, she runs a busy website from home.

If you enjoy needle lace, if you do a lot of whitework and the like, if you’re working on stumpwork pieces that might employ different types of needle lace, this would be a great reference book to have on hand!

About the Search Press edition: The wire binding allows the book to lie flat on open on your work table, so that you can easily reference the book while you’re stitching.

This type of binding allows for printing on the spine, so that it’s easy to see the title of the book while it’s on the shelf, but it offers all the convenience of a wire-bound book, when it comes to using the book. The books are hard board covers with a glossy finish. They’re very sturdy, and they’re small enough to slip into a project back or basket for easy reference.

Postcard Reviews

January 2020
This book is perfect for practicing needlework stitches.
Each page is dedicated to a specific stitch with a drawn diagram that is easy to follow. The author has gone to great lengths in order to give clear instructions, hints and tips so that any stitched can master the craft.
From basic backstitch to filler stitches, there is something that will outline and decorate your chosen project.
While there are no specific projects in this book, as a hand sewist I found this book extremely helpful. If you enjoy any kind of embroidery this book is invaluable for learning and advancing your skills.
