What a bargain! (Edit) 11 Nov 2011
By Rudy Fan - Published on
I really like this book! First of all, it has a nice feel. The pages open up nicely, lying flat on the table. It is stapled on the side, but don't let that sway you. It is a well made book with close to 100 pages. There are 26 sections, ranging from all the basic stitches to more exotic embroidery such as Assisi, Pulled-Fabric, and Drawn-Thread. There are sections on bead work, applique, and sewing machine embroidery. These are just a portion of what is included.

The way each section is arranged works for me. For each stitch featured, there is a 1 3/4" by 2 1/4" picture along with a colorful diagram of how that stitch is made, and next to that a description is written to tie it all together. There are other photos of completed embroidery projects, but that is not the focus; the stitches are. When necessary, photos of hands and hoops show how to do the various, more difficult embroidery. I wish that those were a bit closer to the stitches, but they are 'okay'.

I'm somewhat a middle of the road stitcher and would recommend that a beginner would do well with this book as would the person who wants more of a challenge. It has something to offer both.

Watching these stitches being made on video would be ideal, but that's a ton of videos to watch. :-) It would definitely be helpful when doing the harder stitches, but for a general, all purpose reference book, you can't go wrong with this one. And it's at a great price!

Edit: Since this is now unavailable new, the price is higher with shipping. I would not pay more than $10 for this with shipping. Just my opinion though. :-)

Same old thing... 27 Aug 2008

This is no different than other books on embroidery I have seen. Actually, it convinced me that I should (once I learn how to do it myself...)make a video, as it would be so much easier to learn from than trying to follow diagrams such as those found in this book.
