Gary Clarke has mastered organza work with fabulous style and ease. This title features approximately 22 projects and additional designs for the reader to work. The subjects vary from fish, flowers, landscapes, nursery rhymes, fruit, lilies, birds, houses, Little Bow Peep and much more. Gary covers general organza instructions, framing, mounting, threads, fabric and needle stitches. The instructions for each design include watercolour paintings and line drawings. Each design has been worked in a different style, yet all could be worked in any one style, such as traditional satin stitch, couching, beading, cross stitch, stumpwork, applique and many more. Gary stresses the importance of mounting the works correctly, each design having been mounted differently.
