By applying the time-honoured techniques and traditions of Japanese embroidery, beautiful beaded motifs are brought to life. Nine stunning projects are included ranging from simple beginner designs to a sumptuous evening bag.
Margaret Lee’s passion lies in preserving the traditional arts of Japanese embroidery and bead embroidery, both of which have their roots in Chinese embroidery. Margaret is among the world leaders in the art of Chinese ‘Su’ embroidery, one of the world’s oldest and most admired embroidery styles and has received teacher accreditation accordingly.
She is committed to passing on the knowledge and skills of these art forms in their best tradition and has developed a program, considered to be a world first, to teach Chinese/ Japanese embroidery techniques to the western world.
