In Painting with Thread Kit Nicol has developed an exciting approach to stitch craft that will have wide-ranging appeal. Her exquisite embroidered pictures range from simple landscape scenes using just one or two stitches to raised embroideries incorporating more elaborate techniques such as stumpwork. Kit also borrows freely from other areas of needlecraft, using traditional quilting techniques such as trapunto to give a simple 3-D effect. Packed with useful tips for designing and executing your own embroidered pictures, Painting with Thread is an inspiring book for stitchers of all levels of ability.
Kit Nicol draws much of her inspiration from the countryside around her home in Norfolk. Following formal art training, she ran an Art Centre in Yorkshire, teaching embroidery, painting and creative crafts. Her thread paintings have been exhibited at the Mall Galleries and Westminster Gallery in London.
