Review:

The centuries-old craft of embroidery is enjoying a strong revival today. Beginners will find all the information here they need to get started, and more experienced needleworkers will enjoy the attractive projects. The 10 basic stitches are carefully spelled out in detail, and then the "Stitch Library" presents how-tos for more than 100 stitch variations in the six stitch families (straight, satin, crossed, knotted, looped, and laced). "Special Skills" offers opportunity for further embellishment and expansion of the stitcher's talent, with crewelwork, couching, ribbon embroidery, beading, and monogramming. Each of the 20 good-looking projects (including bags, tablecloths, cushions, a shawl, and even monogrammed espadrilles), contains full step-by-step instructions, a materials list, a stitch and color chart, and color photos of the finished piece. --Amy Handy
