I like to think that these were the first stitch idea books out and also in mini travel version. They’re wonderful, bound at the top with wire so they sit flat and have lots of ideas on how to use stitches in them. It’s a good book to page through and read, then go back when you need to find that “particular stitch”. There’s a lot more of these, but Christmas is always a popular one. Try the Architectural stitches too – I used that one on my house canvas.
