Just One More Thing: Review, Revisit, Remind • Jan Beaney & Jean Littlejohn
Jan and Jean tackle their most commonly asked questions in this book which offers hints and reminders on a variety of embroidery and mixed media subjects.
In general, our suggestions are meant for those who are making pictures, panels or hangings where freer actions can be taken.
Jan has been pioneering the use of soluble film. She has included further developments of the use of soluble film along with Jean’s input. Although we are serious about our work and our teaching, we also like to have fun. We hope this is reflected in this book.
