Postcard Reviews - Feb 2020

Part of an exciting new series spearheaded by the Royal School of Needlework, this forward-looking guide explores the intricate art of embroidering boxes for use as keepsakes and jewellery boxes.

There are three projects to try: a small treasure chest with a curved lid, embroidered dragonfly detail and a false floor; a hexagonal box with a beautiful embroidered lid depicting afternoon tea, and an intricate stumpwork casket with a mirror in the lid and a hidden drawer. Each has a template and extensive instructions for preparation, embroidery and construction.I

This is a book of joy for embroidery fans. The stunning embroidered boxes are exquisite. They are also accompanied with a history of the box, and from start to finish you are guided step by step to make your very own piece of art. The boxes are usable, beautiful and the embroidery designs are just amazing. There are design templates to copy, but I think it would be easy to design my own to make it more personal. Every fan of embroidery would love this book, it is pretty, the photography of the boxes really show off the intricacy of each one and the boxes are achievable to make.

Beautifully written with clear instructions and many good clear illustrations. 3 stunning projects to try. A must-have for anyone learning this art. Would recommend this book along with the RSN classes on the subject.
