More than 100 stitches, organized by type and illustrated in close-up color photographs, plus a host of patterns and techniques, make this the ultimate luxurious reference for embroiderers. It’s comprehensive and a superb value, filled with ideas for creating a variety of looks, highlights, and ornamental elements. In detail, it covers selecting the best textiles, preparing the fabric, and choosing the tools. There’s also a complete "Embroiderer’s ABCs” to start beginners off. Featuring such lovely stitches as the daisy, feather, and fishbone outline--all presented in simple steps--these beautiful projects range from Jeweled Buttons to a charming Advent Calendar.

I had borrowed this book from the library several times and found it very helpful. Its clear and concise and illustrations are well done. A good resource for learning new stitches and practicing previously learned ones. Read full review
