I recommend ALL the A-Z books.
This volume concentrates on one of the most fun kinds of needlework…stumpwork. This is work that is raised from the ground fabric. You can do it on any type of fabric or canvas. The format is color photos of each step required to execute the stitch. Techniques and stitches are taught in this book and I’ve done some of them myself! Then you can do any of the 20 included!
