Editorial Reviews

Review

With wit, intelligence and imagination, Nicol swiftly dispels the myth that embroidery is a dying, outmoded art, revealing how basic stitches can be stretched in exciting, new contemporary ways of working ... There are probably less than a dozen embroidery into their own unique language. Nicol is one of them. Not only does she appear to do this effortlessly, but with great warmth and enthusiasm: you know she is still truly excited about the potential of embroidery. We have not been able to look away from this book since receiving it. We need more artists like Nicol and more books of this calibre. Embroidery Filled with unexpected fashion and textile inspiration Easy Living Pure eye-candy for anyone who loves to embroider, or just gaze at embroidery. The variety, originality and sheer volume of Nicol's work is jaw-dropping. Embroidery as Art (Nicol's) enthusiasm about the potential of embroidery sings from every page. Surface Union An intriguing book, full of images and inspiration ... a thought-provoking coffee table book designed to intrigue and provoke discussion. Hot Brands, Cool Places A more contemporary inspirational resource for students inspired by the vintage theme - high quality research material. -- Claire Baker, Cleveland College of Art & Design, UK 20130207

As a textile artist, I was hoping for instructional information on techniques not a coffee table book with pretty pictures.

A friend in art class showed me her copy. It was an immediate "must have" book. I do a lot of embellishing on my quilts and fiber art and saw some items I've used in Karen's book. I bought a copy for myself and a 2nd copy as a gift for a friend. She loved it too and put it on her blogspot to share with her other quilting crafting friends.

Karen Nicols book is beautiful. Any fiber artist , especially embroiderers , can learn a lot about style and technique.
I loved it and the explanation on materials is great.
