About Michael Powell

Michael Powell's work is normally originated in pen and ink and watercolour: his unique style translates brilliantly into needlework, whether it is cross stitch or needlepoint/tapestry, where he replaces his watercolour palette with the vast range of cotton or wool. The resulting designs take on a new, fantastic vibrancy of their own. Michael has won The British Craft Awards Designer of the Year numerous times, and is continually working hard to create wonderful new designs for your stitching pleasure.show more

Review quote

Issue 102 - September 2017 The latest in the hugely popular series, this book is unlike any cross-stitching guide we have seen before. With 20 unusual and charming designs, it will bring your festive decor right up to date. You're sure to enjoy the process as much as the results, thanks to the detailed yet easy-to-follow stitch guides and straightforward instructions. * Sew * Popular artist Michael presents twenty contemporary designs on a Christmas or winter theme. The delightful images are suitable for cards and decorations or other small items such as book marks and scissor-keepers, which would make lovely gifts. The designs, worked from easy-to-follow full-colour charts, are ideal for beginners, but also include suggestions for those with some sewing experience to expand the techniques. Good value for money. * East Kent Embroiderers Guild *show more
