Where Meadows & Gardens Grow

Venture where meadows & gardens grow as embroidery artist Jo Butcher reveals the magic of her picture-perfect stitching.



Re-create the wonder and beauty of twelve picturesque scenes, as you join Jo on her journey to capture the realism of nature using her trademark layering technique, combining a simple watercolour wash, a handful of embroidery stitches and a palette of the prettiest colours.
