Sunbonnet Sue fans will find Loyce Saxton’s Redwork Collection for All Seasons (published by Search Press) an absolute delight.
The book begins with the basics of redwork embroidery, introducing you to suitable fabrics, floss, hoops and methods making it a perfect introduction to this form of embroidery. There is an illustrated stitch guide which clearly explain how to create a selection of stitches that you will need to use within the following projects and even instructions on successfully using the iron-on transfer patterns included in the book.
There are a number of featured projects including a spring pillow, Easter towels, a summer tray, hot pads and gift bags. Each project is provided with clear instructions from beginning to end as well as full colour photographs of the finished products. Full patterns are included within the book both as an iron-on transfer or as a traceable pattern allowing you to choose the transfer method you prefer to use.
Wonderfully put together and a fabulous bookcase addition for both beginners and experienced embroiderers alike, we think it’s also a brilliant bargain too with an rrp of only £9.99.
