Pen & Sword. Nov. 2020. 128p. ISBN 9781526759580. pap. $19.95. CRAFTS
From one of her grandmothers, embroidery artist, Instagram star, and Etsy contributor Sturmer learned the importance of creating art. Sturmer was largely inspired by her grandmother’s beautiful flower garden that was always a place of many happy memories and her own love of Shakespeare. After covering the basic materials needed and the range of stitches required, Sturmer offers crafters 10 different floral-themed projects ranging from basic—Rosemary Sprig Arrangement—to intricate—Spooky Bouquet—in design. Each project includes added tips that can help inject another layer of creativity. Sturmer also provides brief tutorials on creating your own embroidery patterns for those wishing to branch out on their own.
VERDICT While the scope of this gorgeously photographed book is narrow, there is a wealth of easy-to-follow information for both novice and advanced embroiderers, who by carefully stitching along with Sturmer will soon find their homes blooming with colorful art.
