Last week, I reviewed La Serenissima, the new crewel embroidery instructional guide from Talliaferro. At the end of my review, I promised you a little surprise, and here it is!
Today, thanks to Anna, the artist behind Talliaferro, I’m giving away one complete instructional guide to one lucky stitcher out there who wants to take on this gorgeous project!
Read on for the details on how to join in the fun!
If you haven’t read any of my reviews of the instructional guides from Talliaferro, you can find two of them here on Needle ‘n Thread: Royal Persian Blossom and La Serenissima. These reviews will give you a clear idea of what to expect in the instructional guides from Talliaferro.
The guides are just that: thorough, step-by-step guides for these gorgeous crewel embroidery projects. They don’t include fabric or thread, but they do include all the information you need to purchase your own. This way, you can substitute threads and fabric, and you can even change up the color scheme if you wish.
La Serenissima is suitable for intermediate embroiderers and beyond. I think it would be somewhat challenging for an absolute beginner, but a determined beginner could take it on, if the desire is really there. None of the stitches are difficult – the most challenging part is getting the shading right.
