This is a welcome reprint of Frances Salter's classic book on Bargello. Bargello is a canvaswork craft produced in wools and silks and characterised by parallel lines of straight stitches that produce geometric formations, often with remarkable 3D effects. Being quicker than other forms of needlework and basically comprising repeat patterns, it is a relatively simple technique to master. This book contains 34 stitch patterns of both traditional and modern patterns. All are carefully explained and graded according to difficulty to guide the user and help build confidence and proficiency.
