About the Author

About Michael Powell

Michael Powell's love of buildings and architecture are the main inspiration for his work, normally created in pen and ink and watercolour. Michael's unique style translates brilliantly into needlework, whether it is cross-stitch or needlepoint/tapestry, where he replaces his watercolour palette with the vast range of cotton or wool. The resulting designs take on a new, fantastic vibrancy of their own. Michael has won The British Craft Awards Designer of the Year numerous times, and is continually working hard to create wonderful new designs for your stitching pleasure.

Reviews

Embroiderers Guild

This is one of the best of 20 to Stitch Books by Search Press. Unique designs by Michael Powell with his attention to detail. The charts are clear and in colour, easy to follow and suitable stitcher. Excellent value and if you know someone who stitches a fantastic Stocking filler.


East Kent Embroiderers Guild

Popular artist Michael presents twenty contemporary designs on a Christmas or winter theme.  The delightful images are suitable for cards and decorations or other small items such as book marks and scissor-keepers, which would make lovely gifts.  The designs, worked from easy-to-follow full-colour charts, are ideal for beginners, but also include suggestions for those with some sewing experience to expand the techniques.  Good value for money.
