We are delighted to announce that our long awaited book, giving a step by step guide on how to make Embroidered Boxes, is now available to buy.
Written by RSN Tutor Heather Lewis, the book explores the intricate art of creating, embroidering and embellishing boxes for use as keepsakes and jewellery boxes. There are three projects for you to try, featured in the book – a small treasure chest with a curved lid, embroidered dragonfly detail and a false floor; a hexagonal box with a beautiful embroidered lid depicting afternoon tea; and an intricate Stumpwork casket with a mirror in the lid and a hidden drawer. Each has a template and extensive instructions for preparation, embroidery and construction.
We were very excited to receive the books before anyone else and be able to offer them to our Friends and Supporters. We even have a limited number of signed copies available for the first 50 purchases. The book costs £17.99 and will make the perfect Christmas gift.
Heather Lewis said: “I hope that this book inspires you to enjoy box-making as much as I do, and helps you to develop your skills and knowledge so that you can create your own keepsake embroidered boxes.”
The new Embroidered Boxes book is part of a collection of technical and inspirational guides that we offer, including the Essential Stitch Guides for Jacobean Crewelwork, Silk Shading, Whitework and many more!
