Whether you refer to it as crewel or Jacobean, this free form of surface embroidery has been around for centuries and is still popular amongst needle artists today. Because of the nature of the fanciful objects and the tradition of using a large variety of stitches in one project, it lends itself to endless creative expression. In this book Hazel Blomkamp uses a wide selection of materials to update techniques and inspire embroiderers to explore whilst working loosely within the confines of crewel work styles. She shows needle artists how to be creative with fabric, threads, beads and alternative stitches, borrowing techniques from other forms of needlework, and still producing a product that is typical of the crewel or Jacobean style of embroidery.The original designs include: Projects including beads and metal threads to add sparkle and texture to your work. Monochrome embroidery making use of a variety of threads and beads, all within the same colour range. Techniques employed in needle-made laces with designs defined by means of texture. More traditional embroidery including shading and satin stitch and the many variations of trellis couching to provide texture and interest. The completed embroideries are displayed in ways that are not only decorative, but are useful in the home.
  • Wow! Hazel Blomkamp brings Jacobean embroidery to the modern embroiderer with stunning instructions and projects. The flowing, stylized Jacobean florals and animals are still widely admired and stitched today, but Blomkamp has modernized the palettes and materials and brought even more whimsy to these classic designs. First, not all are worked in wool in linen, Blomkamp allows for cotton, silk and space-dyed threads in her projects and while she does concentrate on the classic linen, she speaks about other ground fabrics.

    The result are wonderful, jewel-like creations that beg to be stitched and displayed. Blomkamp sells kits for the designs from this book as well that include fabric, threads and beads. In addition, her instructions for stitches, transferring patterns, choosing colors for your own palette and incorporating beads are all top notch. A wonderful modern embroidery book and one that belongs in any serious embroiderer's library. Highly recommended.

  • Fantastic book! Hazel has taken crewel embroideyr and pushed it into the current century! New fills bring it gave it a huge shove in this direction. I've started stocking up on the supplies required. You can get them all from her but she's in South Africa so I'm trying to find less expensive places to get them from. She uses threads and a brand of beads not sold here. There is one shop that has Anchor floss but not the full line. Another shop carries a few Miyuki beads but very few colors and only size 11. I really like them better than Toho - I find them to be much more even in size where Toho tends to fluctuate a lot. But back to the subject - she's got several pieces that I really want to make - one white/beige tone on tone piece that is just to die for - and several others that I just love. Another thing I like - she does not use wool - around here that's just asking for bugs - it's all cotton and rayon floss and other threads.

  • This little gem is a stunner. There are seven projects to embroider and, unlike most wooly crewel work, the stitches are vivid, very fine and precise. This is couture embroidery, people! Each stage is photographed and instructions are given, although I think only an advanced embroiderer will be able to execute the designs. The great news is the author does have her own website where she sells everything you'll need. No embroiderer's library would be complete without this title. I hope she comes out with more.

  • Highly recommended for all embroiderers. If you have ever become bored with traditonal colours and approaches to Crewel/Jacobean work this book it for you!

  • I am really getting into stump work embroidery and really going back to basics. This book has lots of good ideas and hints on how to make projects professional looking. I look forward to really doing a project from the book but have not had the time yet.

  • Lovely designs and clever modern "twists" to traditional crewel by an accomplished South African fiber artist. I have been inspired by the ideas in the book.

  • Excellent patterns!

  • It has good crewel stitching tips. I was hoping for more color photos and projects. Stitch examples were just fair.
