Stella Edwards is the author of 2 other needlepoint book, the excellent Wildlife in Needlepoint and The Needlepoint Home Collection which I have not seen yet.
At first I thought this was a design book but it really is not. it does have simple designs for a novice needlepoibnter to stitch but the emphasis here is the instruction. You might think the designs in a beginner's book are simplistic. They are not, there are some very nice designs in here.
it starts at the very beginning, in the introduction, explaining everything you will need to know to stitch these projects, types of canvas, yarns or threads, how to form the stitches and how to adapt the designs for use on different items.
The projects are divided into seasons, which is really perfect for a floral based needlepoint book. Each project has a full color stitch chart and color key. Information on materials and step-by-step photographs.
These are mostly all smaller projects, not too daunting for a beginner. This is a very good 1st introduction to needlepoint from an experienced needlepoint designer and teacher.
This is a new hardcover book. Published by Chartwell Books in 1993. It has 96 pages.
Although this book was originally published in 1993 it is still timely. Teaching Needlepoint to beginners has not, really, changed all that much.
