This is a realy handy little book (about 7 inches , spiral bound) it has good diagrams and explanations of needlework stitches used in most forms of embroidery including
smocking and canvas work. It also has a very good working practice section and gives ideas for finishing and using pieces . As This book is small it has easily replaced my weildy Embroidery Bible. A very good buy for beginners and advanced stitchers alike

A really excellent resource for anyone interested in stitch. It conatins clear diagrams as well as photographs along the step by step process. It breaks down complex stitches into a series of stages and gives useful advice. The Bible has a thorough coverage of different stitches subdivided into different sections, and the spiral bound spine makes it easy to keep open to refer to when you are stitching. I have found it vital for my university textiles course and have found even the more complex stitches simple to complete. A fabulous source of information.

Format: Spiral-bound
Spiral-bound, compact, comprehensive and easy to follow are the qualities that recommend this book to any embroiderer. There are many stitches most will remember from school days, but a whole lot more stitches that were new to me, and I am by no means new to embroidery. I would suggest this is suitable for many embroiders, especially those wanting new stitches and inspiration. Betty has divided the stitches into sections such as satin, raised, couching. Each section thoroughly explores the type of stitch giving encouragement to experiment. I particularly like the rosette chain stitch, fishbone stitch, Half Rhodes stitch, Norwich stitch and decorative couching. The working practice technique section is also useful. There are over 200 stitches to keep you entertained. The layout is good as is the photography and the charted designs are crystal clear and of a good size, making them easy to follow and this is enhanced by the clear step by step written instructions. Excellent. This review first appeared on Karen Platt's book review website.

Would never have believed that a concise and detailed stitch book was available.Excellent for novice and/or professional.
The best bonus is the ring construction allowing the book to open flat.
Would recommend to anyone interested in hand stitching.Excellent value.

This book is filled with every type of sewing/embroidery stitch you could ever possibly imagine!
The stitches are grouped into type for fabric such as line, chain, blanket, crossed, feather, satin, couching, laid filling, detached, raised, woven, insertion, smocking drawn thread, pulled, & trimming. Then there is a section on Stitches for canvas i.e. diagonal, straight, crossing, composite & loop and pile stitches.

There is then a 'Working Practice' section which deals with counted thread techniques, freestyle embriodery, canvas work and finishing touches.

For each stitch throughout the book there are photographs of the finished stitch and step-by-step illustrations and text for you so that there's no reason for not being abole to achieve great results.

I have liked browsing through the book and picking out different stitches to try on different areas of my sewing work.

I love this book and would highly recommend it.

I have had this book for many years and I keep coming back to it time and time again. It is clear and concise.

I am someone that likes to read a few different descriptions of how to do a stitch and I have quite a few of these types of books to assist me!!!
