    Alison Cole’s middle name should be Embroidery She writes books on different types of embroidery and each one is thoroughly researched and photographed beautifully She self publishes her books and each one is perfect

    This book is a must have for anyone attracted to stumpwork or gold work which often uses stumpwork elements For the casual embroiderer it is probably too specific although they might enjoy the photography which is nicely doneThere are two types of embroidery books IMHO project books and techniue books Project books have a series of projects ostensibly for readers to copy If the book is a good book those projects may be grouped or structured to teach techniues and someone could use the information in the book to apply the techniues to their own original designs This book is not that It is solely a techniue book The author does not give us any projects to work on to learn the techniues she is discussing She shows both historical and contemporary examples of the techniue but there are no projects to complete Of the techniue books the most effective are the ones that don't just illustrate the techniue and describe it but also include pictures and detailed directions for doing it In this book there often is not much direction on how to reproduce the effects seen There may be line drawings of stitches or every now and then illustrating photos but for the most part readers are left with vague directions sprinkled with hints and warnings Be warned you will almost certainly want to test out some of these techniues before actually doing them in a final piece Because of this I'm not sure a beginner will find this book very helpful There are other stumpwork books that cover basics better An advanced stitcher will have the know how to fill in the blanks when trying these techniues but a beginner may become frustrated if they have trouble duplicating the results Still it is a book I am glad I purchased could not buy it through had to buy directly from the publisher in Australia that will inspire my stitching for years to come
