For Alicia Paulson, embroidery is so much more than simply pulling needle and thread through cloth. It's a way to let loose the imagination, elevate everyday materials by decorating them with fanciful designs, and perhaps most of all, to enjoy the quiet reflection resulting from embroidery's unique textures, vibrant colors, and gentle rhythms. If Alicia's first book, Stitched in Time, could be considered a valentine to the craft of sewing, then Embroidery Companion is Alicia's full-on love letter to embroidery. This is the craft that captured her imagination as a child, helped her through the most difficult times in her adult life, and continues to stay closest to her heart. In Embroidery Companion, she shares stitch patterns and instructions for 30 beautiful projects, featuring three different kinds of embroidery:    * Decorative embroidery    * Counted cross-stitch    * Crewelwork Inspired by vintage motifs and the folk-art traditions of various cultures, Alicia's embroidered embellishments frequently draw from the archives of historical resources to bring a homemade modern touch to tablescapes, household items, and wearables. Alicia also shares all she's learned through helpful glossaries, discussions of essential tools, clear instructions, and projects for crafters of every experience level. Embroidery is an easy-to-learn#65533;--and easy-to-love--craft that spans generations and touches many lives. Whether you're attempting your first project, or you're anxious to challenge yourself with a new technique, Embroidery Companion will be your guide to inspire and instruct for years to come.… (més)

Embroidery Companion is a charming how-to guide to introduce both beginner and experienced crafters to the world of embroidery. The featured projects are explained with clear, easy-to-follow instructions and stunning photographs.
Alicia Paulson's designs have a classic, European feel and are worked in a muted color scheme. The projects presented in Embroidery Companion draw from the embroidery disciplines of cross-stitch,decorative embroidery and crewelwork.
As I glanced through the book, the striking photographs drew me in and inspired me to try a crewelwork project, "The Tree of Life." When I read the instructions for this project, I was impressed by how easy they are to follow and how well each step is explained.
Paulson has the highly-valued ability to explain how to complete a project in a simple and clear manner without making me feel ignorant or as though she was pitching to the lowest common denominator.
Alicia Paulson's Embroidery Companion is a must read for both those who already have a love of embroidery and those who are new to this timeless craft.
