Needlework series with Erica Wilson. “Erica Wilson, noted American authority on needlework, invites the viewer to explore the exciting possibilities of indulging his creative and artistic talents. In this series of color videotaped 15 minute programs she illustrates the wide vocabulary of stitches used in many types of embroidery including traditional crewel, needlepoint, bargello, and crewel point.
As well as demonstrating these stitches, Erica gives professional hints on creating useful and decorative objects. She encourages personalizing an original or derived design through the selection of motif, materials, stitch, color, texture, and size. C. 1971-2 Series release date: 1971
- Program Description
Bargello is also called the Florentine stitch, Hungarian point, and, perhaps most descriptively, the flame stitch. Erica Wilson takes some 18th century American examples of the classic flame stitch, a firescreen fan and a Chippendale seat cover, and with the help of mirrors shows you how you can create modern, unique kaleidoscopic bargello patterns. As the mirrors are turned, the magic spreads and it becomes apparent your creative possibilities are endless.
