The art of candlewick embroidery - a traditionally simple, yet visually appealing form of needlework - was developed centuries ago by settlers in the New World. With no colourful embroidery yarns at their disposal, they utilized more readily available materials such as unbleached cotton calico which they embroidered with the cord used in candlemaking - hence candlewicking. This beautifully illustrated, full colour volume provides fine examples of this traditional craft. Whether a beginner or an expert, easy-to-follow instructions, accompanied by precise diagrams and illustrations, will enable you to create a host of pretty and practical articles to enhance your home. Choose from more than twenty original projects ranging from large quilts, cot quilts, pillowcases, sheets and cushions to wall-hangings, mobiles, guest towels, tray cloths and curtains: patterns and templates for all of the projects and embroidery designs are included. For would-be enthusiasts there is guidance on their first projects, while for those more accomplished in this fascinating art many unique design ideas are supplied. Highly readable, delightfully illustrated and packed with original and exciting ideas, this book will undoubtedly awaken much new enthusiasm for this charmingly elegant and traditional yet practical craft.
