Embroidered Treasures: Animals by Dr Annette Collinge

Embroidered Treasures: Animals

The latest book, ‘Embroidered Treasures, Animals’ features historical work from the Embroiderers’ Guild Collection and contemporary work by members of the Embroiderers’ Guild in response to recent projects and exhibitions.

From crouching tigers, to fearsome dragons and tiny harvest mice to magni´Čücent elephants, the range of animal life is extensive. Chapters include; animals in monochrome, animals from many lands, applied materials and machine embroidery.

This is not a techniques book but is full of inspirational photographs and stories behind the featured embroideries. It is fascinating to see the work of young girls in the 17th century samplers and compare their meticulous work with the exuberance of colour and design achieved by children today. It is interesting to see examples of early machine embroidery achieved on a hand-operated sewing machine and the free machine embroidery of today.

Black work, white work, raised work and metal thread embroidery are just some of the techniques in this book, which is a celebration of animals, of embroidery and the Embroiderers’ Guild.
