Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Inspired by the carpets and textiles of Asia, Africa, and the Americas, Ethnic Needlepoint presents a very richly patterned and vividly colored selection of work. Striking motifs--drawn from India, the Caucasus, Ghana, Nigeria, Morocco, Peru, and Mexico, among other places--are nicely adapted to projects ranging from cushions and chair seats to picture frames and lampshades. The charts are fairly clear and are accompanied by a brief explanation for assembling the actual project once the needlepoint is complete and there is a basic technique section at the end. Still, novices might opt to start with the less complex eyeglass cases before moving on to the more intricate designs.

Format: Hardcover
This book brings the beauty of the various international fabrics to your needlepoint canvas. It's not your grandmother's needlepoint - no cats or flowers, just bold and exciting designs with great color graphs and ideas. I highly recommend this book - I even ordered a copy for my sister although it was out-of-print.

I taught art in a court appointed high school. THE BOYS could not get enough of the needle work paterns in this book. The designs are beautiful in this book and the boys level of committment to doing their best work was a surprise and pleasure.

There are many lovely needlepoint books with an emphasis on romantic or Victorian designs. This book consists of designs with Asian, African and Latin and Native American influences. The photographs are beautiful, the instructions and charts are clear, and the colors dazzling! Highly recommended for all needleworkers---knitters, cross stitchers, crocheters, etc.---not just needlepointers.

Must add my praise for this book. Gorgeous colors in clear graphic designs plus various colorways so you can see what would happen if you use different colors. I get a feeling of generosity from the authors who obviusly love their craft and want to share it.
