Crewel Embroidery

A Practical Guide

by Shelagh Amor
Let your imagination be your guide with the embroidery method known as crewel!
Crewel, with its surface stitches, showcases some of the boldest and most fanciful designs in needlework. Master an expert instructor’s special techniques, starting with the simplest stitches, including stem, chain, split, long and short, French knot, and trellis filling. Shelagh Amor covers the entire process, from selecting and transferring patterns to framing and finishing. Put it all together with 10 original floral projects you can use for clothing, soft furnishings, and framed wall hangings.
Reissue with a new cover.

In 20 years of teaching techniques such as canvaswork, pulled thread, Hardanger, and blackwork, Shelagh Amor established a reputation for meticulous attention to detail and finish. She coordinated classes for the Embroiderers’ Guild, and she served as its president from 1984 to 1986. Shelagh lives in Australia.
