Item description for Arts & Crafts Needlepoint: 25 Needlepoint Projects by Beth Russell...
Overview Shows how to recreate twenty-five designs, presented as patterns and varying in difficulty, from the late nineteenth-century English Arts & Crafts Movement using needlepoint and color illustrations.
Arts & Crafts Needlepoint is an exquisite collection of Beth Russell's designs based on patterns created by the well-loved Arts & Crafts movement of the late 19th century. Here are 25 period-style designs that are easy to follow. They range from the simple to the more challenging and alternative colorways are often given. Each of the designs is accompanied by clear stitch-by-stitch charts, suggestions for the best needle size and canvas mesh, details of precise yarn requirements, stitch types, and order of work. The practical reference section provides complete information on framing up and basic techniques. Arts & Crafts Needlepoint is both practical and inspirational with many photographs taken in William Morris' former home and National Trust property, Red House in Bexleyheath. Those new to needlepoint will find the instructions simple and clear, while those who are more experienced can use Beth's beautiful patterns to create some of their own unique interpretations.

A new edition of a classic Jan 29, 2007
This book is a new edition of "Victorian Needlepoint". It has new pictures, and more importantly, new computer-generated charts. If you have seen the old one, the charts were hand drawn and indecipherable in places. This edition provides clear charts so you don't have to guess which color is used, or where the stitches fall. And the designs are beautiful and timeless. I have the old edition and just got this one...a must have for needlepoint fans!
Double crossing cross stitch Jan 3, 2007
Boy, was I angry when I got this book. It's "sold" as a new book but in fact, it's a softcover version of an older book. AND, they changed the title!! This book merits NO star but the system doesn't allow you to select 0.
