Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


In this illustrated volume, master embroiderer Young Yang Chung shows readers how to "paint with a needle" - embroidering in silk using centuries-old East Asian techniques and traditions. Young Yang Chung provides detailed, step-by-step instructions for 19 original projects - ranging from wall hangings to a cell-phone case - that are suitable for all levels from beginner to advanced. In the text, Chung takes readers on a journey through time as she places silk embroidery in an East Asian historical and sociological context. The book includes tips on how to get started, including the types of tools and materials required, a list of suppliers, a section on starting and finishing methods, and a glossary of embroidery terms in three languages (Chinese, Korean and Japanese).
