A World Guide to Traditional Patterns
by Sheila Paine with line drawings by Imogen Paine

This beautifully illustrated book examines in detail the fascinating symbolism of embroidered motifs and embroidery patterns worldwide.

Each example – Chinese court embroidery or Japanese kimonos; Indian saris or Turkish textiles; Ghanaian banners or Moroccan cushion fabric; Native North American or Mexican needlework – bears its own distinctive designs. The global range is as astonishing as the variety of materials and motifs on display.

All aspects of embroidery are covered – fabrics, stitches, symbols, protective or decorative embroidery.

Complete with
• Hundreds of colour photographs and drawings
• Glossary
• Dictionary of embroidery stitches
• Further reading
• Where to see collections
• How to collect embroidered textiles

This is an unrivalled guide for anyone interested in embroidery, textiles, costume or needlework crafts.

240 pages - this is a massive, heavy book filled with information and photos!
