And these projects are easy, too, because crewel has no counting, no grids, and no cross-stitch-just beautiful free-form embroidery. Dive right in, guided by a basics chapter that explains how to do the different stitches, ranging from French knots to laid filling. Novices will swiftly move on to the 30 practice designs, all accompanied by easy-to-follow instructions and diagrams, and a dozen lovely projects.

The New Crewel is a book devoted to exquisite designs in contemporary embroidery. In my opinion, it falls into the category of a project book more than an instructional book, but it contains good instructional information, too. The cover of the book reflects the flavor of the projects enclosed – they are simple and modern. Though the book is definitely a modern approach to crewel, art springs from something, it has a history, and it can’t be reasonably separated from its history

The first book, The New Crewel, was a breath of fresh air into the slightly musty wooliness that traditional crewel tends to exude

The first book, The New Crewel, was a breath of fresh air into the slightly musty wooliness that traditional crewel tends to exude. Not that Jacobean embroidery isn't beautiful (it is), nor that it hasn't been done in more contemporary looks (it has), but there's been little outside the box. In her first book, Katherine took it outside of the box by, well, putting it into ones - lots of little square samplers with a wonderful retro 60s feel to the designs and colours. The Motif Collection goes along a similar vein, although here she's moved from boxes to circles

I used to love hand stitching, embroidery and crewel. The simple act of manipulating the needle and thread through the fabric is relaxing and fun. But oh....those ' hodie-do ' designs..... This book is a fresh take on an old craft, making it relevant to this millennium. I love the color combinations and designs! You can purchase all of the crewel wool from her website that she used for the designs in the book. This book made an old crafter smile :)

Although the designs are somewhat basic and repetitive, they do exhibit the use of each stitch described in the stitch directory. The designs are easily reproduced and manipulated. I have not yet loaded the CD included.

I have to admit that my crewel working days have long been over, but when I saw this book a quilt design popped into my head - and it won't go away! I have 'a thing' for circles and these are all circle designs !! Beautiful, whimsical, perfect circles. The books begins with a chapter entitles "New Crewel Basics" which I think is a perfect refresher for those who have done some crewel work before or for beginners who know nothing of the joy of gliding wool threads through linen or twill fabrics. Linen types, threads, needle choices, hoops, design tracing, knotting and supplies are covered in this chapter. Most importantly this chapter includes detailed diagrams of all of the stitches that you will use in making the designs contained in the gallery of designs that follow.

Next up is my favorite part of this truly wonderful book - the "New Crewel Design Gallery". Each design includes a border strip that has the necessary information for making the design; fabric, thread, stitches used, how to finish and any applicable notes for the pattern are included here.

A gallery of projects for the designs follows - pillows, skirts, bags, etc. Now - here's the thing - this book also contains a CD of all the motifs in the book. Can you say perfect?! Yes, I'm really happy with this fab book of inspired circular designs !

I was aware (from my grandma) that crewel work is a type of embroidery, but I learned from New Crewel that the definition of crewel is the use of wool thread to create any embroidery stitch on linen fabric. Apparently, it originated in 17th Century England with the Jacobean look (which is currently quite popular). Then it had a huge resurgence in the 60's when it seemed everyone was making crewel owls, cute big headed children and the like. One thing I immediately noticed in New Crewel is that some of the patterns reminded me a lot of the designs I loved to make with my spirograph toy when I was a child. So, I wasn't surprised to see the author mention that she based them on exactly that.

New Crewel uses traditional tools and materials, but takes a modern spin by creating motifs that are based on nature and organic art forms. There are patterns in the back, but I've been mostly using the enclosed CD that has all the patterns on it in jpeg format, because it makes it really easy for me to resize and print the patterns. In addition to the modern crewel designs, there are also several projects in the back of the book that give ideas as to how to use them in items like clothes, baskets, pillows and more. My favorite way is to display them in an embroidery hoop that I hang on the wall. So far, I have had fun making a dahlia, twinkling stars and also a simple marigold design. I'm really glad that there has been a renewed interest in crewel, I really enjoy using these techniques New Crewel and it also brings back wonderful memories of my grandmother!

I loved Katherine Shaughnessy's first book and The Motiff Collection goes beyond my expectations. Her explanations are clear and thoughtful and most of all, inspiring. I love that her designs and ideas are contemporary and achievable. The first book inspired me to try crewel embroidery, with great results and this second one inspires me to become even more creative. Great job!
If you are looking for a crewel motif that is ROUND, then this is the book for you! If not, look elsewhere. This book has lots of round designs--round flowers, round fireworks, round dots...you get the point. I like the updated look of this crewel book, but I am wanting something with more variety. I was hoping that this would give me some guidance and inspiration to do a more modern floral piece on a wall canvas like some of the amazing things I see on Pinterest, but it didn't deliver for me. Also, most of the suggested "projects" were a little weird. Like doing crewel work on window screen or doing some stitches on a felted wool pouch. A little impractical and just not my style.
