Présentation de l'éditeur

Keeping to a theme started in Crewel Twists, this book continues the concept of using non-traditional techniques and materials in crewel or Jacobean embroidery. It showcases four large projects, each with an accompanying small project similar in technique, and shows needle workers how to be creative with threads, alternative stitches and beads. Traditional techniques are explained but are extended with the use of bead embroidery, needle lace techniques, and stitches not normally used in crewel work. Many new needle lace and bead embroidery techniques are incorporated, and the book also explores weaving techniques used to create textures like twill and lace weaves, as well as patterns similar to tartan and houndstooth check. Every project is clearly explained with step-by-step instructions and lots of photographs, and the completed embroideries are once again displayed in ways that are both decorative and functional in the home. Templates of the original designs complete this magnificent source for creative embroidery.

Biographie de l'auteur

Hazel Blomkamp has dabbled with all the needlecrafts since childhood. When her children were babies she developed a passion for embroidery to break the tedium of life with toddlers, using it as her evening reward for having got though the day with her sanity intact. her children are now young adults and she still embroiders in front of the television every night. She has been designing for the past 18 years. Peferring to design projects which appear to be traditional, she pushes the boundaries by introducing other forms of needlecraft into traditional techniques, exploring further in everything that she does. Along with designing, she runs a busy website from home. She teaches at her home studio, in Pietermaritzburg, KZN, and travels throughout South Africa and to Australia teaching embroidery and fine beadwork. She is a regular contributor to South African and Australian embroidery magazines and is a columnist for south African Stitches Magazine.

HASH(0x9b26d894) étoiles sur 5 7 Traditional Designs That Take Tastefully Restrained Liberties With Beads, Mod Patterns, Needle Lace, Needle Weaving, & NO WOOL 15 août 2014
Par SLS - Publié sur
Format: Broché
What's "fresh" about Hazel Blomkamp's Crewel Intentions - Fresh Ideas for Jacobean Embroidery? The fact that it features crewel stitches at all is significant; there just aren't many crewel-based craft books published these days. Stylistically, the traditional designs here are revitalized, yet remain classic without being strictly Jacobean. However, despite being updated with today's materials and filler patterns such as checks and stripes, the resulting look is by no means fully "modern".

Most refreshing is the attitude of both the author and her work. She's got a sense of humor: her previous book was titled Crewel Twists, after all. Blomkamp cares for her readers: the very first instructions involve eyesight and how to wrestle your optometrist (but only as much as needed) into giving you what you might need. Some of us differently-sighted folks might benefit from a less-than-optically-ideal but dedicated set of bifocals specifically for chest-level arm's length needlework. It is suggested that you actually bring your hooped needlework to your next appointment, if applicable. (And perhaps for defense if your optometrist is a fighter.)

Blomkamp's energized approach borrows from stumpwork, needle lace, and needle weaving. Not a single wool thread or fabric is used; instead, the projects use pre-washed Dupioni silk, hopsack, cotton/linen blends, and non-stretch taffeta. Novel yet tastefully restrained special effects are achieved with embellishments such as Miyuki beads, Swarovski rhinestones, and metallic threads.

There are 7 lustrous and lovely projects with stitched areas ranging from about 3x5 inches to 10x8 inches. Some enlarging of the line drawings will be required. Projects include 3 trays, 1 petite mantel clock, 1 music box, 1 needle book, and 1 13-inch diameter footstool. However, any of these can take alternative forms such as framed panels.

Instructions are quite detailed, ranging from 7 to 24 pages for each project. All photographs are full color and nicely sized. Only the 19-paged stitch gallery uses drawn illustrations.

Needlework can require quite an investment in materials, and Crewel Intentions is no exception. In addition to a huge stash of threads* or, even better, a huge stash of friends with threads, you might also need a Spinster twisting tool to make cord, and possibly an overlock machine to make the thread chains. Of course, this depends on which projects you choose to make. Sources for the trays, footstool, clock, and music box are provided, along with sources for the author's favorite no slip hoops, lap stands, and frames.

Definitely a worthy book and a worthwhile purchase. Recommended for experienced stitchers and fearless beginners with big dreams and brave hands.

------------------------ Footnote about threads used ------

* Several non-wool brands/types/sizes of threads are used: both DMC and Anchor stranded cotton, DMC Fils Metallise, DMC Perle, Madeira Metallic, DMC Light Effects metallic, Chamelion Threads Perle, DMC Special Dentelles for tatting, and DMC Satin. Don't be alarmed if you see an unfamiliar floss called "Koeksister Thread", used on just one of the projects. It is not a commercial product, but a thread chain made using an overlock machine. But Chameleon Threads may be difficult to find within the US. Fortunately, the Internet is wide and the author is very accessible via email.

HASH(0x9b271c6c) étoiles sur 5 Possibly the most beautiful but also the most impossible book in my enormous needlework library 9 avril 2015
Par Jane in Milwaukee - Publié sur
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I don't disagree with most of what the most helpful reviewer, Ms. Smith, says here. Yes, these designs are gorgeous. Yes the author shows a keen sense of humor and true caring for us humble stitchers. But...WOW...are these directions ever hard to follow!!! First off, you need to get this book, the precursor:

Crewel Twists: Fresh Ideas for Jacobean Embroidery

My review of that book applies to this one as well. As you can see from my profile pic, I adore the Tudors. Jacobean Embroidery followed quickly on the heels of Elizabethan embroidery and I'm a needlework fanatic, both in stitching and in reading about it. I adore reading about needlework history itself too. It's particularly exciting, then, to come across a beautiful book which, according to the dust cover, has as one purpose to bring Jacobean embroidery into the 21st century. Ya gotta love it.

Any embroidery enthusiast who doesn't start drooling upon paging through the book is...well...I don't think that's available. The projects are just glorious, so colorful and wonderfully designed. Look closely at the cover to see the color gradations and symphony of flower design. But for your own sake (to save your sanity, really) hike right over the stitch gallery and look at the first project beginning on page 42. It's called "A Sherry for Jack" (???) and is labeled a "rectangular Jacobean panel." Except it's not rectangular at all--no corners--it's oval and is displayed in an oval tray. So right there...first pattern...not accurately described. Normally, I would not quibble about such a little detail. But it's appropriate to point it out because the author has the unfortunate mindset that we're more advanced than we are...that she can assume we know initial steps and toss us into the middle of elaborate patterns.

I know my stitches. I made a bellpull sampler with 105 different stitches which include many of the stitches employed here: buttonhole, bullion knot, detached buttonhole, fly stitch, French knot, split stitch, various raised stitches, trellis...even needle lace picot. But, here, pages 30-34 completely threw me for a loop: "Stitches Based on Needle Lace Techniques." The first one is "Needle lace stitch No. 4." The next are Nos. 7-9. Then we jump to Nos. 23 and 26. Huh? Am I expected to already know all the missing numbers? Here are the first 3 instructions for the first needle lace technique:

"-Outline the shape with backstitch.
-Choose the longest, smoothest side of the shape for the first row.
-Come up at the side, approximately level with where the ridge of the detached buttonhole will lie."

(Weirdly, the 14 steps for No. 4 are listed as bullet points. In all the other numbered patterns, the steps are listed by number. This is another example of...I won't call it laziness, but inexactitude of the author's directions.)

If you have never done needle lace, I guarantee you will not be able to pick it up from these diagrams OR from the instructions. Or both. Each of the patterns of detached buttonhole is one line drawing which illustrates two or three finished rows, so you don't know where to begin. There is no section of any flower in the book (that I could see) that applies a rectangular area of needle lace. Yet every needle lace diagram is shown in a rectangle. And just to be constructive and describe how easy or difficult it is to see what the heck you're doing, I just scrutinized the book for any detached buttonhole stitches. You see...none of the projects lists which stitches are used; there is no index; and the drawings of the full projects in the back show only the outlines...not what the stitches inside are. I peered at each of the project photos before I came across this stitch; it first appears in the 3rd project, "Dancing Threads." I kid you not: the first mention of detached buttonhole stitch is on Step 15 "Using the same thread and starting on the left of the semi-circle, work 3 rows of needle lace stitch No. 9." From which direction? How many of the triple loops am I to fit in? Dunno. Can I easily tell the scope--how many rows of a given detached buttonhole design--each leaf requires? Nope. How tight is my tension supposed to be? No idea.

I think with the author being from another country and being amazingly advanced in stitching, use of an enormous variety of fabrics and threads and beads, can't relate to how difficult every project will be to the vast majority of us. Perhaps the challenge is to fudge it!!! To exactly duplicate a single project is too much to ask: I would need 3 times the number of steps, much more detailed stitch diagrams and patterns in the back that point out what stitches go where. How hard would it be to list the large number of different stitches used in each project?

So, once I build up enough steam to use the patterns in this book, I will outline them and use as many of her stitches as I can figure out. But then I'll tone it down and fill in the most inscrutable sections with my own choice of stitches. What the heck...that's being pretty creative, isn't it?

I highly recommend this book for its beauty. But I urge you not to assume you will be able to easily do a single project.

I have stitched for years and sadly, there are very few new and interesting books these days on specific needlework disciplines. Crewel Intentions is a fine exception and a wonderfully fresh look at Crewel Embroidery. The photos alone will make a stitcher want to grab the needle and fibers and start something new. A definite must for the needle worker's library!

While I haven't dug into the meat of this book, I have seen and read enough to say it's a winner! The pictures alone will take your breath away and inspire you to work on your next project! Crewel Intentions is an outstanding book and a great addition to any needlework library!

I absolutely love this book! The designs are gorgeous. And I was extremely happy to see the DMC thread colors were used. I always thought this had to be done with wool thread. I would definitely recommend this book.
