Since we’re moving into the weekend – that blessed time when we can contemplate leisure activities and The Next Project – I thought it would be a good day to share a very short book review with you.
It’s challenging to write a book review about a book that has very few words in it. But I’m sure I’ll manage to say something. The most notable Something is this: if you struggle with transferring embroidery designs accurately, that struggle is about to end. (Yay!)
So please allow me to present this new book on the market – soon to be released, bound to be very popular, and definitely worth getting your pre-order in!
Trish Burr’s Embroidery Transfers is one of the many new embroidery books published by Search Press this year, as part of the 50th Anniversary celebration. They sent me an advanced copy, which took me a full three minutes to read.
And that’s a good thing – because this isn’t a book you have to read. It’s a book of iron-on embroidery transfers featuring designs from Trish Burr’s embroidery books, plus a few bonus designs.
The whole point of this book is to allow you to jump straight into the fun part of embroidery without having to worry about the difficulties of hand-transferring the designs.
At the beginning of the book, you’ll find full color images of the embroideries that are featured in Trish’s many books.
There are no instructions for the embroideries in this book. If you need instructions, you’ll find all the projects detailed in Trish’s original books.
From Trish’s iconic needlepainting projects featuring flowers and birds, to her miniature projects, to her “whitework with color” projects – you’ll find them all ready and waiting for your iron!
There are instructions on how to use the iron-ons (you can get about three good impressions from them, so they can be re-used), and then the iron-ons themselves, which are nicely spaced on the pages so that they’re not fiddly to cut out.
The back cover of the book is a handy folder, so that you can tuck your cut iron-ons safely inside for future use.
If you struggle with transferring embroidery designs, if you long to work Trish’s designs but are hesitant because of the transfer process, this problem goes completely away with this book!
