Year Of Embroidery
Celebrate the seasons through contemporary embroidery motifs for a year of stitching.
Give each month more beauty by stitching embroidery motifs with unique seasonal designs. Follow the course of a year-from snow flowers and skiing bears in January to lily of the valley in May, a collection of seed pods in October, trumpeting angels in December, and much more-to enliven your embroidery with a seasonal flair. Through thirty-eight patterns, designer Yumiko Higuchi offers organic yet modern designs with colorful and detailed imagery and a sweet and lively feel. Stitch projects to display as art or transform your work into small projects you can use. With beautiful photographs, clear step-by-step instructions, and detailed diagrams, A Year of Embroidery offers dynamic and unique designs that will inspire embroiderers of all skill levels.
Yumiko Higuchi studied design at Tama Art University. In 2000 she started work as a handbag designer and began exploring embroidery in 2008. She is the author of Zakka Embroidery.
