3.0 out of 5 stars Good basic book 22 May 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book has a good range of basic statices clearly set. I find it a handy reference guide but for some of the more complicated stitches I find an online demo more useful.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you only purchase one book on embroidery, get this one 23 Jan 2006
By C. M. Nelson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
This is the book on embroidery I have been looking for. I would particularly recommend it for those who have some experience with stitchery and want a really good reference book and to learn some new techniques.

The projects are beautiful and useful and the instructions for the techniques are very clear and thorough. I can't recommend it highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excelent for Beginners 23 Jun 2007
By J. Shearer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I recently borrowed this book from the library and have been so impressed I plan to purchase it shortly. Most of the stitches that have been presented are accessible to a complete novice (there are some that are recommended for those who have some experience). The pictures and detailed instructions are much easier for me to follow the other books I have looked at, as a beginner myself I certainly would recommend this book to help get others started.

4.0 out of 5 stars Contrast is our friend 13 April 2012
By Liz C - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
For the most part this book is great. That said, I did not like the first section of "beginner" stitches that was done in pink thread on pink fabric. A little more contrast would have been nice, but the rest of the book did fine in that aspect.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it. 23 Oct 2010
By K. Sydney - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I adore this book. Everything you ever wanted to know about embroidery, or how to do in embroidery, is contained within. The instructional pictures are clear and detailed. The author presents the material in a very simple, precise way that is easy to understand. I especially appreciate the index of stitches and the general topic index at the back of the book. Makes it easy to find what you're looking for. Highly recommended.
