Embroidery is the art of decorating fabric or leather using any type of thread or yarn that can fit through the eye of a needle. It is not as complicated as it often looks. The stitches are mostly straight stitches placed in various positions to form patterns and are very easy to master. You will soon realize how easy it is to build on the basic stitches you have learned, to be able to graduate to more advanced embroidery work.

Terrible! Even if only for $2.99. First of all it has only eleven pages. The visuals are not clear and some really no useful information. I would not recommend nor would I keep this book on any shelf.
Some stitches have written instructions, some only have a single photo with a brief caption. Many of the 38 pages are taken up with topics other than hand embroidery stitches. There's a section on machine embroidery which is irrelevant in a book on hand embroidery. It's not even a well written section. Contains useless statements like "machine embroidery can be a source of income if you are a housewife or stay-at-home mom." Wish more pages had been devoted to clearer, more detailed instructions on creating the stitches.
It was great!!
