new schwalm book

This is another recent addition to my bookshelf, a book on Schwalm embroidery. It was recommended to me by Linda, a friend blogger from Australia. It was written by a German lady, Luzine Happel, who comes from the area where the Schwalm embroidery originates.
I had to order the book directly from the author, e-mail leuchtbergverlag@aol.com.
It is a very well written book, with very clear instruction and photographs. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in Schwalm embroidery. I consider it better then the book I had already, by Christine Bishop. Although I will still carry on with the sampler from Christine Bishop's book, I look forward to making a tablecloth from Luzine's book.

  2. Radka, this is a lovely publication, as is the other one I purchased, ie Fancy Hems and Borders. Her layout and pictures are easy to follow. I'll be so looking forward to a piece of Schwalm from you. I keep thinking I'll do this technique for my September needlecase.
