If your looking for Needlepoint talk, visit our blog and find interesting topics and helpful tips.
When I bought this used book, sight unseen with no description beyond condition I was not sure what it would be. It could have been graphed designs or just traceable shapes. I suppose I should have known it would be shapes to trace for embroidery.
And so it is, but I am listing it here anyway. Design books with shapes and designs for fish, marine plants and animals are hard to find and someone may find this book very useful.
There are no graphs, embroidery instructions, not needlepoint directions but a medium to experienced stitcher should be able to transfer these designs unto canvas and stitch them.
The book is full of well done hand drawn designs. My bibliography lists it as a C in difficulty (with A the easiest and D the hardest). it says it is a great source for unusual designs.
It was published by Taplinger Publishing Co, New York in 1977. The book is hardcover and has 94 pages.
The book, the pages and the dust jacket are all in excellent almost new condition
