Book Giveaway: Stitch-Opedia
Get the latest from Threads delivered straight to your inbox.
Embroidery adds something beautiful to any project, but can be a bit of an overwhelming task for a beginner. Helen Winthorpe Kendrick’s Stitch-opedia is a complete guide to embroidery techniques.
Stitch-opedia details hundreds of embroidery stitches and techniques. The stitches are sorted into categories for easy reference, and each is detailed with beautiful color photographs and diagrams. Stitch-opedia explains the equipment, techniques and stitches for basic embroidery motifs and is a wonderful go-to reference for any embroiderer. The book also contains a collection of motifs that can be either copied or transfered to fabric for embroidery design.
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.
