Then again, the text is not instructional anyway, but informational - tells you a few tips on the use, characteristics, and some history of the stitch but no 'Bring your needle up from Point A...' - for that you need to figure out the stitching path from the admittedly excellent photos on the next page.
Perhaps I should have rated this a 3* but the photos are very good and I won't have any trouble using the book - but a newcomer to embroidery will with this book. A better encylopaedia of stitches especially for newcomers would be the fantastic The Complete Encyclopedia of Stitchery, by Mildred Graves Ryan (available used and new here on Amazon).
All said, I would likely buy this again but the Ryan book is my next purchase to replace the lost copy, and will be my No1 go-to.
All stitches shown can be incorporated into many crafts,
I am very glad that I purchased this book.
