Stitchopedia: The Only Embroidery Reference You’ll Ever Need

The cross-referencing included in this beautiful book is unique to Stitchopedia and will ensure that the pages of this book become invaluable to the embroiderer. A host of motifs, that may be copied, are included in the book. Favourite motifs can be used over again to create many different finished effects. Photographs of inspirational pieces of embroidery and the vibrant colours of the stitch samples will make Stitchopedia not only a ‘work-horse’ but also an enjoyable experience for the reader.

Stitches are grouped into sections on blackwork, canvas work, crewel work, hardanger, pulled work and stumpwork with detailed instructions, working diagrams, and full colour photographs of individual stitches by name. Each of the stitches has a page reference to the second half of the book that contains an extremely helpful alphabetical listing of stitches. The listing shows thumbnail photographs of the stitches on fabric, a page reference for detailed instructions on the working of the stitch and a list of the techniques for which that stitch could be used.

This beautifully designed book is sure to attract newcomers to embroidery and will guide them through the basic stages of learning new stitches, but it will also be welcomed by more advanced embroiderers seeking to create the most intricate motifs.
