As the Embroidery Host for BellaOnline, you will understand that I look at lots of "how to" books. This one is one of the best of the bunch if you are looking for a general Needlework book.
This is not a small book - it is large and packed to the gills with information.
This information is beautifully and logically set out, with lots of stitch diagrams that are easy to follow.
The book also covers fabrics, thread, needles and just about everythingthing that you may want information about on Needlecraft.
One of the big plusses is the section on mounting your work, and the one on transferring patterns to fabric.
Buy it - you will not be dissapointed.
I keep a tightly pruned bookshelf - only purchasing and keeping books that I will refer to again and again. This book made the cut!
I have been looking for a book that would be helpful in showing differents stitches in knitting and crocheting and found to my amazements that this book was just perfect. It not only showed crochet and knitting stitches, it had embroidery, needlepoints and more.
I have ordered two more books since I first ordered my book and found it so informative. I purchased one for my friend "Maria" and one for my daughter "Ann".
If you only buy one needlework book, make it this one! You won't regret it.
