The author has brought together her expertise and imagination to explain the techniques of this craft. Miniature, for the purpose of the book, is defined as not exceeding six inches in any dimension, although several items are also included that can be worked into large scale embroidery. The material and stitches for this craft need not be complex; the beauty of miniature embroidery is that it can present a challenge to embroiderers of varying levels of skill. In addition, items can be easily transported for working in spare moments, while small quantities of material need not be expensive. The author shows which stitches and materials best adapt to a small scale and covers a variety of techniques such as quilting, blackwork, stumpwork and counted thread. In addition to conventional stitches, she explains ways of simulating larger-scale effects and encourages the reader to be versatile in both her use of materials and her methods. The projects include three-dimensional boxes, framed pictures, pincushions, personalized greeting cards and furnishings for the dollhouse. They are illustrated in both black and white and colour photographs and will inspire the reader to try her hand at producing attractive and useful items with a minimum of fuss and expense.
