9780452252646: The Complete Encyclopedia of Stitchery

Here is the classic reference for all needleworkers, the one handy volume that covers all major types of stitchery and their techniques, tools, and materials. Over 1,400 detailed illustrations showcase every basic stitch or knot and its variations, and the more than 1,000 entries include bargello, crewel, crocheting, embroidering, knitting, macramé, needlepoint, rugmaking, sewing, and tatting. Find out how to crochet fringe and hairpin lace; do beadwork, candlewicking, gros point, and other forms of embroidery; knit Fair Isle, Scandinavian, and Shetland styles; create appliqué patchwork by hand or machine; and braid, knot, and hook a range of rugs. For every mode of stitchery, there's a list of common abbreviations used in pattern instructions and a detailed summary of designs.

Review:

This isn't just another guide to sewing: it provides over 1,000 illustrations and detailed step-by-step instructions for mastering stitches and knots used in over 1,000 different techniques. Enjoy a guide which describes the materials and tools needed for creating patterns and exploring unique sewing styles, and especially appreciate the definitions of abbreviations and terms used in more advanced sewing circles. -- Midwest Book Review
