I was super excited when this newly published book on Bargello Embroidery Stitches was released last year and am happy to now stock it on my groovy bargello website!
Laura and Lynsey have given a nice modern re-vamp of this vintage craft in their detailed book of various Bargello stitches.
This amazing Bargello Stitch book includes 40 design samples graded from easy to advanced. It has easy-to-read charts, patterns for edges and borders for smart finishes, ideas for bringing texture using fancy flosses, and a freestyling collection that mixes several techniques on one canvas.
This is such a great reference book for anybody wanting to delve into the wonderful world of bargello embroidery and try out some new bargello stitch patterns with your own project ideas. The creative possibilities are endless!
If you're thinking of creating your own Bargello designs, check out the Bargello-a-GoGo Embroidery Journal, where you can record and also chart one of these stitch samples into your own project design using the 10 and 12 count graph paper.
