Sandy's Finishing Touches is subtitled "A Step-By-Step Guide To Finishing Needlework. I thought this might be a great book to have for sale here, since I know I know almost nothing about finishing off the needlepoint I stitch, beyond blocking it.
It seems to me there are less places to have good needlework finished then there used to be, as our LNS close, one by one. I used to have beautiful finishing done by a store near where I live, but the owners retired (go figure).
The new store I took my finishing too did a miserable job, in fact ruining a large round petitpoint pillow I spent many months stitching. Oh well.
This book is by Sandy Higgins, first printed in 1991. This is a brand new, 2010 Revised Sixth Printing. The books appears to be very nicely self published and paper bound in a handy ring binding (always good for cookbooks and instructions books so you can follow the directions page by page).
Someone who bought this book from me, when I first listed it told me this is a very good book, very useful.
The book has 71 pages. The chapters are titled:
other edge finishes
pillow stuffings and closures
other needlework projects
Another advantage, the type is good size, no need to wear ones *stitching glasses* to read this book.
Self-Published 2010 Revised Edition. Sandy's Finishing Touches is a Mat Cover paperbound book with a spiral binding.
You may see this book sold elsewhere for less money. Check carefully, it is probably the 2003 Fifth Printing, which wholesaled for less.
