Clear instructions, project appeal may vary

The instructions in this book were very straightforward. Looking at some of the other comments, yes they are geared towards Kreinik thread, and yes it is embroidery done by hand. I was looking for a by hand embroidery book, so that was a big plus. For me there are two negatives, and the only reason I did not give this book a five star rating. The first is the sample patterns provided. I would describe them as country craft, which is fine if that is your style, it isn't mine. Second I was looking for something with different textures of metal thread, which is not really what this book is about. Overall, its very clear in directions, so if you want to work by hand, and like the styles you'll love it.

The book that got me addicted

This book's fascinating. I had never realized how approachable this art form is but this author paved the way for me in gold!

Meet the Metallic Thread Primer: Metallic Thread Embroidery

This book is a must-have tool for needleworkers who use metallic threads, are thinking about using metallic threads, or who hope to use these fibers in their work. It provides a concise history of metallic threads and explains the variety which exist. Colorful photographs, tables, and illustrations are plentiful and helpful. "Metallic Threads," provides not only a history of this medium, but practical advice for present day use, and it goes one step further and offers a wide range of projects using metallic fibers to put your newly acquired knowlege to use. In short, it is a vital reference text for those involved in the needlework industry as a professional or hobbyist, but it is equally an inspirational text which provides fun and practical ways to get acquainted, "up close and personal," with this medium. A job well done by Ms. Kreinik et al! I recommend it highly.
