A new embroidery flower alphabet book from a master embroiderer, Elisabetta Sforza inspired by nature. In un campo di grano-Alfabeti da ricamare or In a wheat field-Alphabets to stitch" has just been released.
It's a book filled with drawings of flowery letters, compiled with wheat, poppies,
cornflowers, bellflowers and daises. It contains 32 pages and embroiderers can
find a full alphabet 11 cm high, 13 decorative drawings, one chromatic suggestion and 12 pages of tutorial to learn stitches and composition.
The book is in English and Italian.
We'll send the book either Priority Mail (Flat Rate envelope if less than 2 of them) within the US or First Class International for overseas books. The book will come in a sealed plastic bag so it won't get soaked.
We have sold out of our first two shipments from Italy but will be getting more in May.
In the back of the book is an ad for Graziano 6262 linen. In the US Access Commodities imports several of the Graziano linens and at present the one color of the 6262 (53 count linen) imported is a custom color called Sycamore Seed Pod. You'll find it in our online catalog. This is a 118" linen as it's made primarily for high-end bed linens.
The photo below shows the Sycamore Seed Pod stitched as counted work with Soie Surfine, Soie 100/3 and Soie d'Alger in red. The color is a tan a bit lighter than DMC 738 (not as much of a red cast as the photo shows).
