Techniques, Projects & Pure Inspiration
Heather Lewis

Description

This forward-looking guide explores the intricate art of embroidering boxes for use as keepsakes and jewellery boxes.

The book is a beautiful, practical guide to creating and embellishing embroidered boxes by Heather Lewis, a tutor with the Royal School of Needlework. It contains a history of the embroidered box, from the seventeenth century to the present day, and features techniques and guidance for needleworkers wishing to apply their skills to a practical application of the craft.

There are three projects to try: a small treasure chest with a curved lid, embroidered dragonfly detail and a false floor; a hexagonal box with a beautiful embroidered lid depicting afternoon tea, and an intricate stumpwork casket with a mirror in the lid and a hidden drawer. Each has a template and extensive instructions for preparation, embroidery and construction.
