EEDLEPOINT by Hope anley


Email this review


The competition here will be the Picken and White Needlepoint Made Easy (Harper & Row) with an easier price (about half) but the vogue in needlework should accomodate a second book. This one is aimed at the woman who wants to use needlepoint as a ""personal art medium,"" not just busy work, and indicates some 50 stitches to be used, combined, varied effectively. There is a short instructive text on types of canvas, wool or silk, frames, designs- their sources and suggestions-and how to transfer them to canvas, applique, and the stitches individually. 50 half tones, 54 line drawings; where to buy wool and frames.
