What is crewel embroidery?
Hi I am a cross stitcher but have seen in several stitchery catalogs "crewel embroidery". I have seen embroidery but have never done it, how is crewel emboidery different? I think there is some beautiful pictures that at first glance in the catalogs I ooh and ahhh and then see it is crewel emboidery and not cross stitch. So I'm thinking maybe I should learn this! Can it be self taught though an instruction book or is it best to find someone to show me?
