A good beginner tool 26 Mar. 2014
By BarbaraLyn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I love doing embroidery and thought I knew all the stitches. When I saw this booklet, I thought maybe I didn’t so I got it.

In reading through it, I find that several of the stitches are really duplicates of themselves. For example, Outline or Stem stitch. They really are the same stitch but one goes on one side of the stitch line and the other is on the other side of the stitch line. So is this really a different stitch? I guess I don’t know how to do proper embroidery as I have done “outline” stitching for years and when I needed to go around a curve, I simply put the thread on the other side to make the curve smooth.

What the author calls a Pistil Stitch is no more than a French Knot with a Straight Stitch. Again, this is not a new stitch but a combination of the basic stitches.

For anyone who hasn’t done embroidery, this is a great reference tool. If you have and want to know what a stitch is called if you combine two basic stitches, this booklet will tell you.

Great Little Book 4 Dec. 2014

This is a great little "take along" book for those quilting away from home for QOV, sewing bees or even on trips. It has just about very stitch you could want to use and is small and lightweight.
