Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Wyszynski, a veteran needlework designer, takes a basics-and-beyond approach to needlework. With coverage of embroidery (including sections on thread, beaded, and silk-ribbon), crewel, cross-stitch, and needlepoint; full-color photographs and illustrations; and easy-to-intermediate projects, this comprehensive guide will appeal to crafters of all skill levels.
