This book is an absolute must-have reference for your library!!
I found the book chapters well organized.
It have many inspiring photos of contemporary embroidery work.
The artists overview after each section is very motivating and inspiring. (The thing I liked most in the book)
It cover many types of embroidery, starting from hand stitches ending by machine ones.
I didn't find the illustrations and explanation of the stitches very clear. Many times I go to YouTube to find a better tutorial there.
I wished if there was a real photo with each stitch to show the final result, instead of only having illustrations.
I don't recommend this book for one who will start to learn embroidery. It is very good as inspiration book!
If you want to learn a tiny bit about many needlework techniques such as crewel and machine embroidery, this is ok, I guess.
This book includes box making, tassel making, hand quilting and smocking which you don't usual find in an embroidery how-to book. It is a book you will want in your needlework library. Sue Mitchell
this is the book for you. Another good reference tool to keep handy for that
tricky stitch you are looking for to adorn something.
Lightweight, easy to read.
If you want different examples of different stitches this is a good book for that.
