Casalguidi style linen embroidery

Review by Darla Bohn on August 30, 2010

Categories: Needlework

This book features a little something for those who enjoy recreating needlework in the traditional style and for those who enjoy using those techniques in a more "out of the box" way. The first several chapters provide a very good introduction to Casalguidi. There is an especially good chapter on finishing your stitched piece. The author provides a number of projects that are simple, practical (some not so practical), and colorful, each one using the style of traditional Casalguidi. It is a good intro to this form of needlework and to the ways it can be expanded to a variety of projects.
