Contemporary Candlewick Embroidery
Through her unconventional experimentation with ribbon, author and designer Denise Giles has formulated an enchanting combination - the texture of traditional candlewicking with the classic beauty of silk ribbon. Replace the heavy cotton threads with delicate flosses, silken or metallic threads, and pearl cotton, substitute the white cotton fabric within linen, woven, muslin, or even color fabrics, add beautiful ribbon embroidery accents, and needle artists are left with this fresh new twist to an age-old needlework hobby. Encompassing contemporary candlewicking fitting for today's home decor, 31 original patterns complete with color diagrams and step-by-step photographs are worked into 29 projects. Greet guests in the entryway with a welcoming coat rack, gather the family around the kitchen table with a warm, hearty meal with placemats and napkins, retreat to where the outdoors come in with dragonfly pillows, butterfly trays, and flower frames.
