TOP 50 REVIEWERon 20 November 2012
Another in this fine series of books from RSN. These essential stitch guides really do give a thorough grounding. Rachel gives an introduction to and history of canvaswork. She takes us through the materials we need and framing up. There are design guidelines and how to start your work, and order of work. We then get into the meat of the book - the stitch directory. This is excellent and gives a description of the stitch and its uses as well as variations and related stitches. I love the very visible diagrams plus a colour example of the stitch when it is worked up. The examples of finished work throughout this book are wonderful. If you have ever thought canvaswork the poor relation of needlework - think again. In particular the work at the back of the book under the section 'Moving On' demonstrates the versatility of this form of needlecraft. This review first appeared on yarnsandfabrics website.

Excellent little book, showing photos of many stitches, arranged in easy to find alphabetical order. The spiral binding enables pages to lie flat for easy use. An inspiration for any embroiderer.

The best of the series. Rachels no nonse approach is refreshing. Her instructions are clear and easy to follow. A must have for all embroiderers.
