Book Review Creative Thread by Jo Dixey

Creative Thread by Jo Dixey, softback published by Search Press. ISBN 9781782216872, price 12.99 available from www.searchpress.com

This book was originally published by the author as ‘Stitch People’. In this book you will discover twenty stitch projects with a wide range of embroidery skills. Stitches and techniques are accompanied by step-by-step photographs. The projects include small items to more complex wall art. Each project embraces the theme of people. Templates are given for photocopying – you need to enlarge them. There is also a photo gallery of stitches used. The best of these are perhaps the people silhouettes, some outlined in running stitch, others embroidered adding a splash of colour. Other motifs include hands, faces, eyes.
