Embroidery legend Constance Howard brings her formidable knowledge of needlework to this creative, innovative, and comprehensive guide to stitching. Using her techniques, and the dozens of close-up photographs and diagrams, it's remarkably easy to create spectacular textures, patterns, and effects in just a few simple steps. See what happens when a stitch is worked in different threads, and learn how to change the scale of a stitch, combine stitches to make new ones, and alter the angle of the stitch. And it's amazing how much is covered: seeding, Japanese darning, a variety of stem stitches, buttonholes and variations, the twisted fly, herringbone, cable chain, zigzag coral, Portuguese border, detached loop, and many, many more. It will enhance any embroiderer's stitching repertoire.
