Offering new challenges for novices and the rediscovery of forgotten skills for old hands, this visual guide describes 50 needlework styles and more than 160 different stitches. The styles are in sections on surface embroidery, counted-thread work, quilting, patchwork and appliqué, and special techniques including needle lace and smocking, each one illustrated with photographs of examples. The stitches are explained with diagrams and range from basics to shisha stitch – an ancient Indian technique for attaching tiny mirrors.
