I have way too many copies of some of the wonderful out-of-print and rare Needlepoint books I stock. I have added 7 more titles to them, 4 of them Bargello books, and significantly lowered the price of all of the others.
Overstock New Books are 20% off, minimum, or more.
Take advantage of my acquisitive ways.
I order the books I sell here with almost no information about them. I usually make my decision based on subject, author and if there are any reviews out here on the net, I read them.
There was almost no information on this little book, subtitled 20 To Make but Ann Cox is a needlework author I am very familiar with. She is author of The Beginner's Guide to Silk Ribbon Embroidery & A-Z of Silk Ribbon Flowers. Both fine books.
This is a small book, quoting from the back cover
"Ann Cox shows you how to make these stunningly beautiful silk ribbon flowers with easy step-by-step instructions and lovely photographs. They can be used to embellish clothes, quilts, scarves, hats , and handbags.
I would like to add use them to embellish Needlepoint. It also mentions making corsages or framing them as decorations.
The book begins with the basics and then there are 20 flowers.
Indeed, the instructions are great and all the pictures are in full color. I want to specifically mention of few of the flowers that caught my eye.
These are not the flowers you see in every other book on stitching flowers or silk ribbon flowers. Beautifully done although I might stop short sat the word *stunningly* (my idea of a joke).
20 to Make Silk Ribbon Flowers is a glossy cover paperbound book from Search Press published in 2015. It is a smaller book and the perfect size to slip into your stitching bag.
