Just a quick note to let you know that there’s a new A-Z Series book coming out: Goldwork with Silk Embroidery. I don’t know a lot about it, but here’s what I do know…
Country Bumpkin Publications produces an excellent line of embroidery books covering all kinds of techniques, and the books are great for beginners and experienced embroiderers alike. Their books feature step-by-step photographs of the stitches and techniques covered, which is wonderful when you’re just learning (well, I think it beats the black and white diagrams, anyway!).
A-Z of Goldwork with Silk Embroidery is due for release in July of this year, and it can be pre-ordered now through Country Bumpkin. I would also guess you could pre-order through retailers here in the US that carry the CB A-Z books (for example, Wooly Thread or Needle in a Haystack). The shipping for Australia to America is pretty pricey!
The Goldwork book promises over 500 step-by-step photos and 10 projects covering 96 techniques of goldwork and silk embroidery. Check out the pre-order information on the A-Z of Goldwork and Silk Embroidery on Country Bumpkin’s website for detailed information.
I’ve been waiting for this book for a while, actually – not that I knew it was coming, because I didn’t! I just figured it was inevitable. I’m sure it’ll be a good, quality book, and when I get my hands on it, I’ll certainly let you know the nitty-gritty details!
