The Modern Embroidery Handbook (PREORDER)
PREORDERS FOR THE MODERN EMBROIDERY HANDBOOK ARE NOW OPEN! Out March 30th 2024 – please read delivery and postage info carefully.
I am delighted to announce that my second book, The Modern Embroidery Handbook, is now available to preorder! Published by White Owl Books, this title will be released on 30th March 2024.
Unleash your creativity and learn a whole variety of hand embroidery techniques with Clare Albans from Hello! Hooray!. The Modern Embroidery Handbook is a perfect guide for stitchers of all levels, and is something you’ll want to pick up from your bookshelf to refer to time and again. Inspired by vintage sewing companions, the follow up to Colourful Fun Embroidery contains step-by-step instructions for 72 different hand embroidery stitches, plus a large-scale sampler, alongside 20 brand new projects. Start with the basic ones most commonly found in embroidery designs, before experimenting with stitches for borders and edging, decorative stitches and motifs, as well as textural stitches and knots. The 20 modern projects give you an opportunity to try out all the stitches, and each one includes full step-by-step instructions, beautiful photos, and templates for you to create them yourself at home.
The Modern Embroidery Handbook will encourage and inspire you to go beyond the embroidery hoop, get out of your comfort zone and be bold in trying different techniques. If you’ve ever wanted to experiment with watercolours on fabric, stitch unique customised pieces to wear or use in your home, or even to create 3D effects with hand embroidery, then look no further. This colourful and informative book will give you the confidence to experiment and help you to find joy in taking time out to be creative!
