"With a different and delightfully practical approach to a traditional and time-honored subject, Jan Messent shows you how to create portraits in stitch. There are simple instructions for shaping and padding different-angled heads, creating faces, adding features and stitching the hair and garments, as well as explorations of the most suitable fabrics, stitches, threads and embellishments to use. Within this book you will discover a host of personalities, including a mysterious white Edwardian lady, the formidable Bess of Hardwicke and a 'book-box' that opens to reveal exquisite renditions of Cinderella and Prince Charming. All of Jan's portraits are filled with character and charm, and have a timeless appeal that will enthral and excite textile artists and embroiderers alike"--Dust jacket cover.

In the early twentieth century, Marguerite Zorach and Georgiana Brown Harbeson were at the forefront of the modern embroidery movement in the United States. In the first scholarly examination of their work and influence, Cynthia Fowler explores the arguments presented by these pioneering women and their collaborators for embroidery to be considered as art. Using key exhibitions and contemporary criticism, The Modern Embroidery Movement focuses extensively on the individual work of Zorach and Brown Harbeson, casting a new light on their careers. Documenting a previously marginalised movement, Fowler brings together the history of craft, art and women's rights and firmly establishes embroidery as a significant aspect of modern art.
