101 Needlepoint Stitches and How to Use Them: Fully Illustrated with Photographs and Diagrams (Dover Needlework) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Tired of doing the same basic stitches over and over again? Noted designer Hope Hanley can help you bring new excitement and beauty to your needlepoint in more than a hundred different ways. In this practical, extremely well-organized guide she presents a treasury of 101 decorative stitches, with an easy-to-read chart and an actual-size photograph for each one.

Only stitches which adequately cover the canvas have been included in this versatile collection. In Tapestry no warp threads are allowed to show through, so why let canvas show in needlepoint? Enhance and individualize your needlepoint projects with expert advice on a host of exquisite stitches: rep stitch; fancy cross stitch; Renaissance stitch; cross stitch; Herringbone stitch; shaded stripe stitch; double stitch; mosaic stitch; French stitch; Greek stitch; velvet stitch; closed cat stitch; and scores more.

The author explains precisely where and how to make best use of each stitch (as a filling stitch in small areas, as a background or a grounding pattern), and tells whether each is slow or quick to work up and whether it's best on mono or two-thread canvas. No stitch combinations have been included, just the fundamental stitch. Think up your own combinations — there are hundreds of them!

Whether you're a beginner, intermediate, or advanced needleworker, give your needlepoint a vibrant new look with this modestly priced, indispensable reference work.

Synopsis:
