The Techniques of Indian Embroidery,
by Anne Morrell, Manchester 1995
|Anne Morell describes in 8
chapters the old and historic stitches which were used in
India. She gives a historic survey on the development of
these stitches, describes alterations and the embroidery
which is still done in India today.
