There is nothing as beautiful as a wonderfully-worked embroidery design, either used to adorn clothing or as an embellishment on a home accessory. Now a new generation is rediscovering the pleasures of the centuries-old craft. Written for beginners and experts alike, Stitch-Opedia describes in detail hundreds of embroidery stitches. Each stitch is grouped into sections that include: canvas work, crewel work, hardanger, pulled work, stumpwork and much more. Each stitch includes close-up, detailed color photographs, a full-color working diagram, and accurate written instructions. An extremely helpful alphabetical listing with close-up thumbnail photographs appears later in the book allowing the user to cross-reference each stitch.

With sections on materials and equipment, basic techniques, and a collection of motifs that can be either copied or transferred to fabric, this beautifully-designed, full-color book is sure to attract newcomers and experts alike with its combination of convenience and creative encouragement.

Praise for Stitch-opedia: The Only Embroidery Reference You'll Ever Need

“As someone that knows almost nothing about hand embroidery, I found this book to be a wonderful guide to basic embroidery stitches. There are a lot of techniques out there, and Stitch-opedia is a great reference for learning them.” —Threads

"This book is a great learning tool.  If you've ever had the slightest interest in any form of embroidery before, then I highly recommend that you check out Stitch-opedia. I am certain that you will find everything you have ever wanted to know... and then some! Even if you are a seasoned embroiderer, this would still be a fabulous book for you. You'll gain a one-stop reference book, plus some fantastic projects you'll want to whip up right then!" ---Wee Share blog
