Embroidery Atelier – Visions & Passions by Sue Rangeley.

An artist’s studio holds the secrets of their creations. ‘Embroidery Atelier’ invites readers to delve into the art and craft of a contemporary embroiderer, and be inspired to stitch.

Nature, nostalgia, the romance of the past infuse designs, eclectic themes drive personal passions. Inspirations for stitch explore frivolous ‘flower power’ fashions, historic mementoes, nature’s world, floral beauties of the famous Hidcote Manor and Sissinghurst Castle gardens. Embroidery takes flight with an array of ideas and techniques.

Beautiful photographic images by Michael Wicks capture the essence and meticulous details of the textiles.

The book features new works created for this publication, and textiles from Sue’s studio collection, with insights into specialist embroidery techniques.

Embroidery Atelier - Visions & Passions is a companion volume to Embroidered Originals.

What the reviews said

'The inspirational images in this book could easily stand alone - the photography by Michael Wicks, makes every stitch sing and enhances the delicate detail in the machine embroidered pieces. Sue Rangeley takes us on a tour of the embroidery she produces in her studio practice. Quite simply a beautiful book.'

'Sue lets flow with glorious inspirational colour that keeps on coming as you progress through the chapters of Frost, Foliage and Flora. The richness of the pieces in the chapters is complemented by the eminently practical Studio Techniques at the back of the book, this was my favourite part and the reason you'd take the book out again when it has fired you up to get stitching.'

'This is not a book just for the embroidery enthusiast, it is a beautiful book to have on hand to browse through and to dip into as an inspiration to look more closely at the art forms all around us.'
