Part of an exciting new series spearheaded by the Royal School of Needlework, this forward-looking guide explores the intricate art of embroidering boxes for use as keepsakes and jewelry boxes. This beautiful, practical guide to creating and embellishing embroidered boxes is written by Heather Lewis, a tutor with the Royal School of Needlework. It contains a history of the embroidered box, from the sixteenth century to the present day, and features techniques and guidance for needleworkers wishing to apply their skills to a practical application of the craft. There are three extended projects to try: a hexagonal box with a lid, a small treasure chest with curved lid, and an intricate stumpwork casket with hidden drawers.
