Chinese Braid Embroidery


by Jacqui Carey

This is a very well-written book about the history and current state of Chinese braiding and the use of these braids to decorate clothing, hence the word "embroidery" in the title. It offers excellent instruction on braiding with graphics, photos, written instruction, and a summary of each braid structure. The same attention to detail has been used in the embroidery section of the book. There are many photos of braiding stands, bobbins, braids, clothing, and embroidery.
