If you add basic embroidery, sashiko, beading, needlepoint and smocking with ties, belts, tennis shoes, photo albums and portraits you receive the contents of Diana's book, "Embroidery Everything Workshop." The content of her book doesn't stop there. Take a look into the 251 pages, you will also find an array of creative projects suitable for everyone from young to young at heart.

As you open the book, you will notice an envelope with a tag stating, "Open here for 48 original iron-on transfer patterns." Inside the packet, you will find line drawings for her many projects she has incorporated in the book. A giraffe, squirrel, family tree, butterfly, bear, frog and rabbit are just some of the examples you can embroider.

Diana's book starts out with definitions for embroidery, crewel, sashiko, applique`, crazy quilting, smocking, needlepoint along with other needlework techniques. She then goes into general instructions on stitching materials such as fabric, needlepoint canvas and stabilizers. Other stitching needs such as threads, rotary cutter, markers, needles and other stitching essentials are explained.

The section "Start Stitching" will teach you how to create different embroidery, needlepoint and smocking stitches. I really enjoyed her "Practice Stitch Card" which you will find in between parts 1 and 2. This handy card can be removed from the book. After you poke holes in the card, you will learn how to create running, back, stem, detached chain, cross and French knot stitches. The card is made of heavy material which can be used over and over again. The card will make teaching young beginners a breeze.

Part 2 will take you into the projects.

I was at the local B&N looking around in the craft section when I spied this book. I have Ms Rupp's first book, which got me really into machine sewing ( I now make my own clothes), so I took a look. AMAZING! I had only ever seen embroidery as cross stitching (which I did a lot of in high school), so I was amazed at the projects in this book. Fun, exciting, chic, things that I love. I ran to the counter to buy this book, and went to get some supplies for a basic project (she tells you everything you need for a given project, plus a list for "The ultimate embroider everything kit", after practising on the neat "Practise Card" inside (which could include more stitches to work on) and doing a doodle cloth one night, and I finished a "Daily Panties" project in under an hour last night. The skills for each project are listed on the side, including where in the book to find out how-to, they are rated from super simple to a bit more advanced, and I (a crafty 20 year old female) can totally see myself doing most of them. The only thing I would have liked to see in this book is a section on doing embroidery with a sewing machine, but I'm holding out hope that the author will write another book with that subject in it.

This book is for the "newbie" like me who doesn't know how to do embroidery or cross-stitch and want to learn quickly. She, Diana Rupp, shows you everything you need to know and to buy, and teaches you all the stitches that you need to learn. The book comes in "spiral type" format, you can fold it easily on the page you want it! She even includes a practice page/cardboard kind where you can practice some stitches, plus the book comes with an attached envelope with patterns for projects where you can choose from. It's really modern and nice, I like it!

Embroider Everything Workshop is the beginner's guide to embroidery, cross-stitch, needlepoint, bead work, applique, and more! First, the book will teach you the basics of needlework including the supplies you need, how to prepare your needle and thread, and how to hoop your work. You'll also learn how to start stitching and what's involved in getting your design onto your fabric. You'll learn about the different types of needlework.

The projects themselves are broken down into For Wearing, For Kids, For Home, and For Giving. There are also 48 original iron on patterns to use in your projects. I love that they are contained in their own envelope inside the book so they stay safe and are all in one place. No tearing things out at all involved here. There is also a practice stitch card for those that aren't sure what each stitch looks like. There are directions and a diagram for each stitch.

The projects are very easy to follow and the book lays flat with a spiral binding so it's easy to work from. There is a photograph of the final project, step by step written directions, a list of supplies needed, stitches uses, techniques you need to know, loads of diagrams showing you how to do stitches, where pins go, where you switch colors to different floss, etc. This is a fantastic reference book for anyone who wants to learn a new craft or even to share a new craft with their child. There are several crafts in this book that would be suitable for a pre-teen to learn. Based on a review copy.

This book is really great if you have no idea what you're doing, which craft type is for you, or if you're interested in branching out from one form of stitchery or another.

The explanations about the different threads, tools, and uses of each stitching type was very well written and I feel much more confident now about what kinds of projects I want to try and which ones to stray away from. The illustrations were excellent, much more helpful than photographs. There are also a lot of little tips that I felt were *actually* helpful, like running recombined threads through freshly beeswaxed lips in order to seal them together.

The included projects are both fun and functional, easy to follow, and some even offer "shortcuts" for those who do not need perfection (ie: skipping using waste canvas to ensure your stitches are straight and even - if that's not your thing.)

I would buy another book from this "Everything Workshop" series.

A few reasons for four stars instead of five is because I was interested in the cross stitching portion of the book and I feel I still have questions after reading "The Basics" (which is all the instructional portion of the book, after that its all projects.) Also, the included Practice Stitch Card only highlights a few (6) of the stitches and not even the complicated ones (though I would agree they are the most widely used freehand embroidery stitches) and is not pre-punched. Granted - most books likely don't even offer a practice card, but I felt it was a bit of a half hearted effort. I would have preferred a full page card that was pre-punched.
