Books about embroidery
I believe it is very important that the knowledge about certain techniques lives on and even evolves. This is my read thread when I am working on developing my books and teaching in the field of embroidery. To this day i have written two books.
Appreciated gifts. I will sign them of course if you want me to.
Grafisk korsstygn (graphical cross stitch)
In the book “graphical cross stitch” I have collected 30 of my designed embroidery patterns in cross stitches for cushions, toiletry bags and cases & bags that you can embroider yourself. The book shows innovative and inspiring patterns. For all products there is a description of how to mount them. The book is spiral bound and the copy in the book is both in Swedish and in English.
Uttryck med nål och tråd (expressions with needle and thread)
The book “expressions with needle and thread“ is a manual in free artistic embroidery.
It is my aim to impart fundamental knowlegde about the stitches’ nature and characteristics. In the book you will get to know the tools, materials and application techniques and you will learn how to create exciting fabrics you can embroider on. Above all this the book will inspire you within small excersises to draft, embroider and create composition with needle and threads by your own. The book is a guide for those who want to develop themselves in free artistic embroidery, those who want to go on, createing new personal stories with their hands, learn more about embroidery techniques and let needle and thread take them on new embroidery adventures. Right now the book is published in Swedish.
