Printed Book

The Art of Chinese Embroidery

Margaret Lee is among the world leaders in the art of Chinese ‘Su’ embroidery, one of the world’s oldest and most admired embroidery styles. Her first book 'The Art of Chinese Embroidery - Foundation Level' is an immaculate ‘how to’ study and introduction into this unique embroidery style.



Margaret goes to great lengths to ensure each stitch is clearly explained and illustrated to teach you both the technique and its application, allowing you to not only learn, but also understand the stitch. Meticulously designed and presented in a format tested through many years of teaching – it is like having Margaret in your living room.

The seven projects are carefully selected to lead you on a journey to learn the skills as well as develop an understanding of the art form. The Art of Chinese Embroidery is much more than a learning experience - it is an artwork in its own right.

  • Fully illustrated ‘how-to’ book with clear diagrams throughout.
  • 7 projects with full page colour photographs, detail illustrations and step-by-step stitch instructions
  • Perforated full size patterns – no resizing required!
