This is a wonderful and incredibly useful book. It is a classic reference book which has achieved near-legendary status since it was first published in 1934, owing to it's clear instructions and huge library of stitches. This detailed guide is ideal for those starting out with needlework as well as more accomplished embroiderers looking for inspiration for different stitches and techniques.
It includes full illustrated instructions for over 400 embroidery stitches, ranging from simple border and outline stitches, to filling stitches, canvas stitches and pulled fabric stitches. Scattered throughout are dozens of inspirational embroideries to show the stitches in use.
This new, redesigned edition includes the internationally renowned embroiderer Jan Eaton's revisions to the original text, and a preface by famed embroiderer Mary Corbet.
