Ready to Knot Thread Stitch! June 28 2012
By risa friedman - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book is a visual treat! I've admired Lisa Solomon's work for years and couldn't wait to get my hands on her book. I love that Knot Thread Stitch contains two versions of every project - Lisa's version and one created by another artist. This approach to a craft book not only provides double the inspiration but encourages creativity by demonstrating the many ways each technique can be executed. My only complaint is that I now have so many ideas that I don't know where to start!

Don't just do-it-yourself, make it your own! June 24 2012
By L. Duran - Published on
Format: Paperback
"KNOT THREAD stitch" will reshape your thinking about what you can do with a needle and thread. The included projects are unique, fun, and appealing with lovely photographs and personal insights as to what inspired their creation. However, it is the author's fresh approach in presenting her ideas which excites me the most. She has taken each of her projects and invited another artist she admires to put their own spin on it, thus providing two great ideas while encouraging you to personalize the projects and make them your own!

Not your grandma's embroidery book... Aug. 28 2012
By Alanna Spence - Published on
Format: Paperback
... But grandma would approve. I love this book. It's got everything. The projects are so fun and easy, with lots of room for self expression. This book is full of inspiring artists, with easy contemporary projects, a sprinkling of history and tons of tips on techniques. Every time I pick up this book I find new inspiration and information. I recommend this to anyone interested in pushing the boundaries of embroidery. Fabulous photos and clear instructions.

think outside the hoop July 9 2012
By Jesse Lu Bain - Published on
Format: Paperback
"Knot Thread Stitch" is not your average embroidery how-to book. What Lisa Solomon has written ought to be classified as a 'you've gotta try this' primer of sorts. Though Solomon does outline the ins and outs of the basic materials and techniques of embroidery, "Knot Thread Stitch" is more of an introduction to thinking outside the box, or hoop if you will. Solomon has designed projects that folks new to embroidery can easily access, in fact some of the very artists included were newbies to embroidery themselves; yet she remains true to her fine arts background and guides readers to dig deeper by encouraging more mature ideas, sprinkling in bits of art theory, and reminding us of the importance of intention. I love how downright silly some of the projects are like finger puppets and shrinky-dinks, but even these silly projects open doors about how to combine materials in new ways that even seasoned artists can appreciate. This book won't just teach you how to monogram your hanky, it shows you how to tap into your own creative voice... even if you never thought you had one.

Maybe a good book for crafting - not for traditional or interesting needlework projects Nov. 24 2013
By Bella-Bella (By the sea ~~~) - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Most embroidery books get my attention. This one didn't. It's okay but the designs just were not my thing, having a more crafty feel to them rather than art or traditional needlepoint work. There were good instructions and pictures of the finished projects. But nothing that was catching my creative juice. I am going to pass it onto my grandkids and see if they are interested in any of the projects. Then it will be fun to work a project with them. If they aren't this book will be donated to the local library.
