Editorial Reviews

Review

Karenplatt.co.uk: The inspirational floral designs in this embroidery book were themselves inspired by the work of master decorative painters in the USA and Australia and also by the Zhostovo folk art style of Russia. They are portrayed in crewel and surface embroidery. Roses, poppies, lavender and much more is found here. The interpretations by Trish Burr are talented, the colours beautifully blended. Each step-by-step project is accompanied by materials and colour guidance as well as clear instructions. The book also has a superb introduction and stitches. It is suitable for beginners to advanced embroiderers with a skill grading for each project. This 144-page book is superb for all lovers of floral rendition.

About the Author

More About the Author

Trish Burr is a self taught embroiderer. She was born and raised in Zimbabwe. In 2004 she moved to the Western Cape in South Africa with her husband and their three children.

She teaches and gives talks at workshops and guilds in South Africa, and contributes internationally to needlework magazines and other publications.

Her projects are mainly floral but she has recently expanded her work to include birds and portraits, devising means to include minute details in her subjects. Her emphasis on light and shadow brings her embroidery alive and her artistic use of colour further enhances the three dimensional effects in her work.

Trish is recognized for her unique style of long and short stitch embroidery. She has spent many years researching this technique and willingly shares this knowledge with fellow embroiderers. To quote in her own words:

"We need to keep hand embroidery alive, but if we hug our ideas to ourselves, they will become lost and worthless in the future. If I give you a gift, I no longer have it, you do. However, if I give you an idea then we both have it, and if you share this idea with others then we have multiplied it, expanded on it and watch it grow."

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
First section covers materials and equipment. Techniques and tips and a stitch glossary. This is well illustrated and especially good on long and short stitch. The next section explains how to embroider some of the background motifs. Then come a few pages explaining how to work some motifs step by step before getting into the patterns. The largest part of the book is on the 17 projects which are grouped into level of difficulty. There are 7 beginner level, 5 intermediate and 5 advanced level. Each project has a color picture in the full size, followed by the design which can be traced, list of threads, another diagram with stitch directions, another color illustraion with numbers which lead to the colors and stitches and finally a long section called method with very detailed working instructions. That is really more than enough to succeed. My only problem is that I need to enlarge each project but again, she also explains that too. So t his is a very complete thorough guide to crewel flower embroidery and I have never seen such completeness in a crewel book before. If you do flower embroidery and/or crewel embroidery, don't miss this book.

This is the best book so far by Trish Burr. It is all there except the fabric and threads. Really good illustrations and directions. Felt like I was in a workshop with her.

The book presents clear and detail embroidery guideline - step by step. The illustration makes it easier for beginner. The designs are beautiful. Some of the designes are similar to each other though. Overall, it is the best book about teaching crewel embroidery that I have ever seen.

Trish Burr does a beautiful job on all her books. You can not go wrong having them for inspiration. I teach needle painting and always looking for her books. This one is on Crewel but you can use the same needle work with 1 thread for needle painting. Each student buys her book and love them.
