For the delight of all creative gardeners and embroiderers, the beautiful art of needleworkers through the ages is presented in glorious colour illustrations in this fascinating exploration. Guided by acknowledged expert Thomasina Beck, reinterpret and recreate the beauty of the garden in embroidery, drawing inspiration from embroiderers from the sixteenth century to the modern day.
