4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Jane in Milwaukee TOP 500 REVIEWER on June 15, 2012
Format: Paperback
This volume is one edition of several of Lucinda Ganderton's and all are excellent. I have myriad needlework books but this is one I turn to consistently to add freshness to my stitching.

The variety of stitches is exciting. It's difficult to find so many all together so you can plot out a whole piece or change out a pre-graphed pattern. The book includes everything from line and border stitches to openwork and filling stitches to needlepoint.

I used the excellent directions on hem stitching to design a short course for my Embroiderers' Guild of America group. Lucinda's secret is to use bright colored yarn on wide gauge fabric so you can see where the needle goes. The average stitch in all hand embroidery entails probably 4 or 5 separate steps; most books only show 2 and then the finished product. Here, the author shows ALL the steps in each stitch including that all-important "how do I begin the second stitch?" To be able to learn stitches quickly and easily makes me feel accomplished instead of frustrated. Take the fear out of learning new stitches and check out this book.
