A craft book of practical application which aims to help embroiderers of all ages and ability. Central to the book is the barn on the Bett property where the three authors meet regularly to stitch and dream up new projects. The projects are distinctive for their original use of vivid colours and varying textures and include designs for everyday items such as the strutting goose tea-cosy, the deer deer hot-water bottle cover, the Dr Wark shoe bag. There are also works with their origins in family history and the traditions of other countries such as the Dowager's wrap and the provencal-prompted garlanded antimacassar. Techniques such as crewel work, applique and box-making are used throughout and there are five quilts to stitch. Each project lists the materials required with step-by-step instructions, templates, and black and white illustrations.
