Who is Margaret Light, you ask? Margaret Light is an Australian embroidery artist who focuses her work around historical embroidery techniques. Her work draws on creative periods of the past, from 16th Century Islam through to the Arts and Crafts Movement of the late 19th Century.
Within this gorgeous book the reader is invited to stitch beautiful needlework accessories, decorative panels, and embroidered tiles that all draw from a rich design history that ranges from Islamic architecture, 17th century crewel bed hangings, Indian block prints, and the Arts and Crafts movement.
There are fourteen projects in all, detailed instructions are provided for each step, and there is a comprehensive library of diagrams and step-by-step photographs for more than 90 stitches.
This book is imported from Australia via Inspirations Magazine. Their site is fun to poke around in and they offer a beautiful gallery of the books they publish. See more about A Fine Tradition here: https://www.inspirationsstudios.com/product/a-fine-tradition-marg-light/
