Please! Don’t be fooled by the title of this book. This is NOT a project diary book. This is an excellent book for the beginner that wants a full detailed explanation of the why, how and what about…questions that come out when you’re alone and your teacher isn’t there to help.
This book begins with the basics of supplies, threading your needle, and goes into more complex issues such as types of fibers, elements of design, and ends with a good assortment of stitches. I would recommend this for any stitcher interested in a strong understanding of the basics of needlepoint – or canvas embroidery as it should be called.
