Freestyle Embroidered Mandalas is a collaboration and co-creation by three well-known authors who worked on a beautiful Mandala book along with a team of talented South African embroiderers.
This is the front and back cover of the book.

The authors would like to thank the following embroiderers who helped make this book as beautiful as it is. When we decided to put this book together, a short timeline was proposed. It would not have been possible to complete it without an enthusiastic team of competent South African embroiderers. These ladies, who became known as ‘our work party’, were chosen not only for their competence but also because they are all jolly nice people. Grateful thanks are due to every single one of them:

Here are only some of the designs and projects in the book. Don’t you think they are lovely! There are a total of 25 designs and 27 projects (as two designs were repeated in different colours to show you how versatile the patterns are) so there is something for everyone.
