About the Author

Lorna Bateman is passionate about embroidery, nature and teaching. She has been working full-time as an embroidery teacher and designer since 1989. Her teaching has taken her all over the UK, to her native South Africa, as well as Russia, France and the USA. In 2002, Lorna launched her own embroidery designs in kit form, available from her website Lorna lives near Alton in Hampshire, UK.


I am very passionate about embroidery, I think the art of stitching fabulous designs lie in the ways of the teacher.

Lorna Bateman both expertly explains and demonstrates the craft, and her 'pictures' come alive in this very, very beautiful book.

The photography is stunning, and with the addition of templates, you will quickly be able to sew an amazing project. It will be easy to become a master of embroidery with just this one book.

Embroidered Country Gardens lists all the tools you will need, it also gives you a comprehensive guide to needles.... if you thought there was only one kind think again!!

The stitches are in A-Z order and what I loved was that each stitch is given a visual diagram, a hint and tip box and an easy to understand explanation.

There are 12 projects, each one is perfect to practice your stitches and once again comes with specialist advice on getting a professional finish to your work.

This is a must have book, inspired by nature it is quite divine.
