    Hazel Blomkamp has been a needlecraft designer for nearly 20 years. She teaches at a home studio and travels throughout South Africa and to Australia to conduct lessons and workshops on embroidery and fine beadwork. She contributes regularly to South African and Australian embroidery magazines and is a columnist for "South African Stitches Magazine."

    The free form of surface embroidery known as crewel or Jacobean embroidery has survived for centuries as a popular craft and art technique, a style of needleworking that is updated and made readily accessible to contemporary embroiderers through this detailed guide. Using a wide selection of materials, the book demonstrates how to let creativity flow into a project through unexpected uses of fabric, threads, beads, and alternative stitches and by borrowing techniques from other forms of needlework. The projects these methods create retain the aspects inherent to crewelwork but utilize unique and exciting designs to reinspire needleworkers or newcomers with an alternative approach that appeals to the modern crafter.
