This is the best embroidery book i came across, i ve been searching for this kind of books in many stores, and one day i was so lucky to find this in B&N, i wanted to give it as gift to my mom, but am keeping it with me until i get bored seeing n seeing all the techniques, i like to keep it as a permanent library book....everybody needs one like this. B&N or any book store should have more n more copies of such valuable books, i found just one when i bot.
I needed a book which shows and demonstrates the various embroidery stitches. It has been a few years since I have done any embroidery work. This book shows all basic stitches plus many more sophisticated stitches. It will be a good addition to my library and a good reference book. I recommend this book.
