Folk Art Needlepoint
20 Projects Adapted From Objects in the American Folk Art MuseumBook - 2008
With an eye to developing the best book for needle pointers attracted to folk art, Ruth Peltason has selected twenty objects from the American Folk Art Museum in New York, the country s leading museum in the field. This collaboration results in such appealing projects as a multicoloured belt taken from an 1890s log cabin quilt or a tote bag designed with hearts and hands based on love tokens cut in paper made in the mid-nineteenth century. Along with exquisite photographs of the pieces in room settings, Ruth Peltason provides delightful notes on the motifs and museum pieces that have inspired her as well as charming asides about decorating with your new needlepoint cushions, picture frames or even curtain tiebacks. Complete with a techniques and materials section to guide you through essentials such as needlepoint stitches, thread and canvas selection, and project preparation, Folk Art Needlepoint provides everything you need to make classic pieces come alive in your home as fresh, contemporary works of art.
