The book will be devoted to five fairy-tales / novels for children and adults, all well-known and - as they seem to be - in top favourite all around the globe:
- Cinderella by Sharles Perrault (first published in Paris in 1697)
- The Wild Swans by Hans Christian Andersen (1838, Copenhagen, Kingdom of Denmark),
- Scarlet Sails by Alexander Grin (1923, Russia),
- The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum (first published in Chicago in 1900) and
- Karolcia by Maria Krueger (1959, Poland).
Aimed for beginners
...as well as for experienced embroiderers and to everybody who enjoys creativity, experimenting with stitches and playing around with textures and techniques.
More than 90 stitches and author`s techniques would be there in the book, all in step-by-step photographs and - where necessary - associative memorizing tips to make the study process easier and funnier.
"A huge lot of pictures!"
There really would be a lot of them there in the book. In a word, there is an attempt to reduce the text whensoever possible. Psychologists have found people are more likely to follow diagrams and to study images rather then to read instructions.
Easy to stitch
Some of us hate shild shading, do not we? There would be tips in the book on how to avoid it, to replace it, and even projects excluding silk shading (long and short stitching) at all!
