Books by Rosalie Wakefield
Developed from over 200 Millefiori embroidery designs and more than seven of Rosalie Wakefield’s books on Brazilian embroidery, including Take A Stitch, a new spin is now added to familiar stitches as hundreds of innovative ideas fill the pages in My Book of Stitches.
This collection of dimensional embroidery ideas is meant to inspire other stitchers toward designing and creativity and may be used on any project – crazy quilts, wearable items or needlework for the home. Visit my blog at http://rosaliewakefield-millefiori.blogspot.com/ Patterns to use with some of the flowers and stitches will be posted periodically.
5.5” x 8.5” Coil Binding, 298 pages
More than 120 flowers, veggies and wildlife inhabit An Artist’s Garden, a Brazilian dimensional embroidery book by Rosalie Wakefield. Several designs have been developed to demonstrate stitches and flowers from the book.
You will need a copy of the book to complete, as shown, the design #958, "I Spy - Flower Patches". This design is suitable for a small art quilt and incorporates the majority of flowers from the book.
Please refer to the book section at this website for other Brazilian embroidery books by Rosalie Wakefield.

ABCs for Brazilian Dimensional Embroidery is a book of patterns for 3” floral motifs – double designs for each number and letter of the alphabet, with 52 easy-stitch flowers for transfer to clothing or accessories, or for monogrammed items. Tucked in among the flowers are 54 “Warm Fuzzies” (cats and dog, birds and bees, bunnies, bugs and butterflies).
Take A Stitch offers the intermediate to advanced needle artist new adventures in stitchwork with a creative approach to dimensional embroidery that features stitch techniques for floral motifs and other designs.
More than 130 stitches with pictures, diagrams, and over 140 designs using these Brazilian dimensional embroidery techniques are included.
Four large projects [front and back cover design prints are sold separately] demonstrate new, original, and collected dimensional stitches: They are: Millefiori design #876 "Ruth’s Gazebo" (front cover) and Millefiori design #879 "Cutie Pies" (back cover). Traceable patterns for a small landscape design ("Sew Many Flowers") and Millefiori's famous 22-Stitch* Hummers (*Give-or-Take a Stitch) are published in the book.
To Take a Stitch is to begin an adventure in artistic stitch design as the embroidery enthusiast plays with stitches (Yes, it's OK to play with your floss!) and the creative uses of 100% rayon floss or other fibers.
