It's all here, along with a dozen embroidery stitches in photos so clear, you'll know exactly how to re-create them.

If you love wool applique’ as much as I do, this is a must-have book! In Wool, Needle & Thread, Lisa provides step-by-step photos and instructions on how to embroider projects just like she does, including her prep techniques, favorite supplies, and five projects you will love.

One of the things I like the most about this book is… the side boxes with tips! We see these beautiful projects and sometimes are not sure which thread weight to use (or why to use), what is the best way to fuse wool applique’ shapes, and how to finish off the edge in a professional way. It is all in this book.

Lisa has over twenty years of experience stitching wool, and we should listen. I, for one, am loving the photographs – I will finally become more confident with the hand-stitched blanket stitch.
