Raised Embroidery: A Book Review

Jessica Grimm has written an interesting review of the latest book from the Royal School of Needlework—Raised Embroidery by Kelley Aldridge.

Although this book is written for those interested in embroidery, not needlepoint, the raised and dimensional techniques can be adapted to needlepoint canvas with a little ingenuity (and often using a sharp needle instead of a tapestry needle to pierce the canvas threads to place a stitch just where you need it instead of just in the holes).
