I love the many styles of embroidery that fall under the banner of the Arts and Crafts Movement! The time period was between 1860 and 1910, and it encompasses distinct styles in different countries. The Glasgow Style of design is my favorite. This is a beautiful book with lots of color photos of embroideries and great explanations of the various designers - William Morris, Arthur Lasenby Liberty, Jessie Newberry, Ann MacBeth, Candace Wheeler - to name a few. Fascinating reading and a great resource for collectors. Hardcover, 176 pages.

Silk gimp is made by wrapping a silk core with another silk thread resulting in a very fine cord. Used in the 17th century in raised embroidery (Stumpwork) to add a dimensional effect to trees, leaves, animals' fur/manes, clothing, etc. It is thin enough to be used in a needle to make French Knots or it can be couched with matching fine silk thread. Soie 100/3 is ideal for couching the gimp. 10 meter spools.
