The Ehrman Needlepoint Book Reviews
This book has some of the most beautiful designs for needlepoint that I have yet run across. The only problem is that the graphs are color coded, (as opposed to symbol coded), and since there are so many colors in a lot of the designs, they are pretty hard to read.
The Ehrman company produces beautiful and intricate needlepoint kits. They published this book in 1995, I purchased a used copy in excellent condition. The book has beautiful needlepoint charts which are easy to read and give you a listing of what color yarns and the number of skeins you will need to complete the project. Each color is also listed by color number in Anchor and Paternayan yarns. There is a section called Textiles where the projects reproduce detailed textiles like The Owl which was designed by Henry Deale who worked for William Morris in the Morris style. The next section is The Sea and includes fish, crab, bird catching a fish and lobster pillows, a seashell vest, and an ocean liner picture. Next is the New florals section with several beautiful big bold floral pillows, a fruit pillow and foxglove and delphinium wallhangings. Next is a section called a lighter touch which incorporate humor like the lily pad frog and a crown pillow. The last section is called Old Florals which are very traditional floral and fruit charts. The photography is beautiful and vibrant.
This book is not for amateurs; only advanced stitchers need apply. The designs are gorgeous but the number of colors needed for each is overwhelming. The end result is worth the effort however and some of the designs are unique and truly beautiful. Take a look at the series of cosmos designs for an example of magnificence.
This book and the other's are my first introductory into vintage embroidery. They give you history on needlepoint and of the beautiful designs they have included in the book.
the book is full of needlepoint patterns plus pictures of the patterns finished. It is a handsome book and well worth what I paid for it. I have almost finished a piece that that I have made from one of the patterns in the book. I had often seen ads in well-known magazines advertising the finished pillows. made from the patterns in the book...but now I can make my own!
