Publisher's Description

The Needlepoint Book is the only needlework guide you’ll ever need—now including 436 stitches and 1,680 illustrations.

Since its original publication in 1976, The Needlepoint Book has become known as the bible for all stitching enthusiasts—the one resource for every needlepoint aficionado. Whether you’re new to the craft or have been practicing for years, this guide covers your stitching journey from inspiration to achievement with specific guidelines on how to make the painted canvas yours.

Featuring all-new projects and stitch patterns for every level of expertise, you will learn practical skills, such as how to:

- Choose your project with purpose
- Tell its story with stitches and fibers
- Create mood with color and texture
- Fill that blank background
- Select and use embellishments such as beads and sequins

Included in this revised and expanded edition is a crash course on how to use new fibers; updated information on materials, as well as how to work with and care for them; dozens of new stitches; and diagrams and stitch guides for select projects included in book. Also featured are thirty-two pages of color photographs with all-new projects; dozens of new stitches explained with photos and drawings; and a new ribbon stitch chapter.

The Needlepoint Book is the one book to own on the topic. In one comprehensive volume, it has everything you'll need to create your own artistic, high-quality heirloom.
