New Crewel: The Motif Collection

Katherine Shaughnessy, author of "The New Crewel", continues her original, modern approach to needlework - and takes crewel embroidery to a higher level. For this stunning collection of motifs, all in circular patterns, she has whipped up a fresh menu of creative ideas, including 30 new designs, five new stitches and ten inspirational projects. Just as with Katherine's first compilation, this includes photographs and colour diagrams of each motif, along with how-to illustrations, plus a feature not offered previously: a CD of the motifs for easy download.

About the Author

Katherine Shaughnessy is the author of The New Crewel and the founder of Wool & Hoop. Her crewel kits are available at and at more than 50 stores throughout the US, UK and Canada.


"Shaughnessy's 2005 book of the same name brought crewel embroidery into the 21st century, and this collection of modern crewelwork motifs should win over younger crafters looking to explore new techniques. The contemporary-retro aesthetic here suggests a cross between midcentury modern and Spirograph, with a touch of the natural world thrown in for variety. A guide to basic stitches and materials is provided, as are a number of easy projects featuring crewel embellishments. VERDICT Shaughnessy's sequel is as good as the original, and the included CD contains printable and resizable versions of all the motifs, which will allow stitchers to combine and remix them." -- Library Journal
