Willing Hands 2


More counted thread embroidery by Betsy Morgan by Betsy Morgan (Author)

Book Description

The remarkable legacy of Betsy Morgan continues with a brand-new collection of enchanting ornamental cases.

Following on from the international success of Betsy’s first book launched in 2019, Willing Hands continues, with the release of a second title featuring ten new projects.

Worked in counted thread techniques using hand-dyed silk threads, Betsy’s stunning work boxes and accessories are embellished with exquisite motifs creating a rich tapestry illustrating her life stories and experiences.

Ten beautiful cases and 24 coordinating accessories, each with colour charts to guide every stitch. Detailed instructions are provided for every step from stitching to construction.


Book Threads

This book is the follow-on book to Willing Hands Volume 1 by Betsy Morgan.

Willing Hands 2 is a stunning book of etuis embroidered using the counted thread technique. 

Each etui has beautiful colour pictures to show the etui and the accessories that can be made to complement the etui. There is also a good list of requirements, fabric, supplies, needles, and threads. The instructions are very clear regarding fabric, layout, stitching order and hints to help you as you progress through the project.

There is also a lovely section covering all of the stitches that you will need to complete the project with clear colour photos and text to describe the stages to go through when completing the stitch.

All the examples also come in kit form. The final section is that contraction of the etui and the templates required to complete the etui and these are at full size so no messing around copying to enlarge the template. The only thing I found is that the charms and some of the buttons used for the projects are not available by the main supplier of delivery to the UK or Europe but there are alternatives out there if you are prepared to look for them.

Overall this is a lovely book, and I cannot wait to start my next project.


Love Embroidery

Following the success of her 2019 publications, Betsy Morgan's iconic ornamental cases come to life once again, harmoniously complemented by 24 additional coordinating accessory projects in her latest book, Willing Hands 2. She'll help you hone your counted thread skills with detailed step-by-step instructions from stitching to construction.
