Mastering the Art of Embroidery

Tutorials, Techniques, and Modern Applications

Sophie Long

Embroidery is back in a big way! This comprehensive guide covers everything readers need to know with 30 illustrated, step-by-step tutorials for all the essential techniques, plus a section on digital and free-motion machine embroidery. More than 500 color images showcase a range of contemporary applications alongside inspiring artist profiles, a dictionary of embroidery stitches, and sections on other needlecrafts such as crewel, applique, and cross-stitch. Mastering the Art of Embroidery is the new go-to resource for crafters of all skill levels to keep on their bookshelf.

Sophie Long had the honor of embroidering the much-publicized wedding dress of Kate Middleton for her marriage to Prince William. A graduate of the Royal School of Needlework, Long now works as a freelance hand embroiderer and teacher.
