The chapters/stitch categories are as follows: outline stitches, border stitches, composite band stitches, isolated stitches, open filling stitches, solid filling stitches, detached filling stitches, straight and slanted canvas stitches, crossed canvas stitches, insertion stitches, edging stitches, cut and drawn stitches and pulled fabric stitches.
Within the book there are some (perhaps half a dozen) beautiful pictures of completed needlework in different styles, most of which incorporate a variety of stitches and I found several of these to be very inspiring. I really feel that this book provides all the information needed to dive right into embroidery and to produce high quality work. I suspect that it would also be of great use to those with much more experience due to the number of stitches shown and the clarity of their arrangement.
