Enter Krawczyk's book. The section on stitches was clear and has a wide enough variety that I don't think I'll ever get bored (and can refer back to it if I get confused), but is enough of a knowledge base that if I want to try some more complicated surface stitches, I'll feel more confident having mastered these. I love her style in the projects presented, as well -- I'm looking forward to making some boho coasters and maybe even some covered buttons if I'm feeling adventurous. (I have a coat that needs some new ones; I think I just talked myself into it.)
If you're a very advanced stitcher, I can see how this may feel a little basic, but for someone like me, who's dabbled but never gone deep, it's the perfect book to give you the stuff you need to know to explore embroidery without feeling like you've got to be an expert right away. Of course, after practicing all the info Krawczyk gives you, you'll probably *be* more of an expert than before. Call that a bonus score. :)
I received a complimentary copy of this book to review, but my opinion is my own.
