The Complete Needlepoint Guide

I've had this book for several months but didn't get around to really reviewing it until this week. I bought it because a friend at The National Needlework Association recommended it.

The book is by Susan Sturgeon-Roberts. It's organized alphabetically not by stitch type. The book assumes that you will be using Paternayan wool and tells you how many strands to use. Each stitch description tells how durable the stitch is. I love to use decorative stitches so it's good to know that some are relatively durable! It even includes instructions on how to stitch on a piece of mirror or a bead.

We still have some in stock. Take a look when you come into the store. I think it's a good edition to my personal library.
