Sandy's Finishing Touches is subtitled "A Step-By-Step Guide To Finishing Needlework. There is a lot of interest in Needlepoint Finishing right now.
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.
This book has recently increased in price, again. This is the second time in since the revised edition. You may see this book sold elsewhere for less money. Check carefully, it is probably the 2003 Fifth Printing, which wholesales for less.
I am only raising the price the amount of the wholesale price rise. I am sorry, however.
