Ditch your digitized designs and embroider in fabulous free motion with fiber artist and author Terry White. She goes over five different intermediate-level projects, each teaching you a new technique to achieve hand-stitched appeal. Learn how to embroider redwork with the Rabbit Dance pattern, where Terry shows you how to stitch French knots, smooth contours and satin stitches. You'll also mimic crewel embroidery and fill in the Little Bird pattern with free, uncharted needlework that adds personality and realistic beauty. The Russian needlepunch and lace projects will add even more wonderful looks to your embroidery work.
