Encylopedia of Classic & Vintage Stitches is a sourcebook for stitchwork practitioners: a compendium of 245 embroidery stitches photographed close-up, accompanied by stitch-by-stitch instructions, plus hundreds of illustrations and meticulous charts and diagrams.


Twenty-four superb projects offer practice-makes-perfect work on every kind of embroidery, from cross-stitching and huck-weaving, crewel and needlelace to smocking and bargello. The finished products? An array of skill-displaying samplers, a Victorian brooch cushion, glittering Shisha bag, silk ribbon floral pane, Hardanger tablemat and more, in a portfolio of beautiful handiwork. A great reference for beginners and the experienced alike.
