BOOK SYNOPSIS: The purpose of this book is to present a step-by-step description of how to do Brazilian Stitchery. It was at the urging of our students that we wrote this step-by-step account. Our students wanted a detailed book for themselves and for friends who lived in areas where classes were not offered. We hope this book fulfills that need.
Brazilian Stitchery is fun and easy to do, surprising most people because it looks so involved. These three dimensional stitches are especially beautiful when done using imported Brazilian rayon thread. Any available embroidery thread will make your needlework exceptional, if you apply this technique.
Brazilian Stitchery is lovely embroidered on blouses, dresses, jackets, lingerie, evening wear, wedding gowns, baby’s clothes, bedding, etc. Brazilian stitchery can be put on anything worthy of embroidery. It is our fondest wish that you will enjoy Brazilian Stitchery as much as we do.
