Punti A Giorno (Decorative Hemstitch)



In stock

My fourth book is designed to give instructions for a drawn thread sampler which I use in my hemstitch courses: this allows me to demonstrate a process which is fairly simple, but essential for the finishing off of any piece of embroidery (hems and corners). The manual covers various types of drawn thread work, needleweaving and wrapped stitch knotting, with diagrams and scans for reference, accompanied by the "School of Corners" section, a topic not to be underestimated for a successful outcome.

Punti a giorno (Decorative Hemstitch) can of course be used to finish any kind of work, but it can become a wonderful extra feature, bringing transparency to curtains, tablecloths or other items, because it combines so well with every technique.
