Our customer reviews

Have just seen this book in the shops in Melbourne, Australia. Fabulous for those interested in learning the art of thread painting (needle painting). Trish's instructions are so clear and the layout is very user friendly. Well worth the purchase. Just love her examples to work. I am looking forward to Book Depository getting me a copy (or copies) soon as I intend to give this wonderful book as a gift to my embroiderer more
