'brilliant format . .really useful . . the video segments are perfect. The lesson itself is first rate; the six designs are beautiful and exceptionally clearly described. There are tracing images, colour charts, stitch direction charts and finished images for every design, as well as detailed stitching instructions for each. This is an excellent ebook'. - Popular Patchwork

Helen shows you that there is no need to know fancy stitches, or to follow complicated stitch guides, instead you work from a template (which you can print from the book) and a directional guide and use just `one simple stitch' to make all the stunning projects in this book.
The book includes useful integrated video clips showing Helen demonstrating the techniques used in the book. The benefit of it being an e-book is as well as video guides you can click on the integrated links in the text to take you straight to the relevant section of the book.
This review originally appeared on The Sewing Directory.
There are videos of Helen demonstrating the stitching, playable whenever you want and as many times as you want (a vast improvement on reading how to make a stitch no matter how good the writer or how many diagrams are provided).
Printable templates, colour guides and stitch directional diagrams for each of the 6 projects. It is the inovation of the directional diagrams, which are being introduced for the first time in this ebook, which solves the 'worry' for anyone when embroidering. It is the lie of the straight stitches that create the effects and Helen has by this ebook done everything she could to share her creative ability with us.
Each of the projects is taken from nature and makes a beautiful picture in its own right:-ponisetta, butterfly and clematis (as shown on cover), robin and sweet peas, fieldmouse (under wheat and poppy), damselfly and iris, and blackberries with travellers joy.
Having used it I now want to get some of her books for the inspiration from her beautiful designs.
A lovely, simple craft yet with infinite variety and lots to work towards with better understanding of colour etc - I really find it a relaxing type of embroidery. Loved this CD book - shame there aren't more crafts using this media to teach their skills.
