Needlepoint for churches and synagogues must be a popular book subject. There are a number of books about this in print. This book is subtitled " A step-by-step guide to canvaswork kneelers".
Quoting the back cover " Easy to follow step-by-step sequences illustrate how to design, embroider and make up a simple church kneeler, with practical and inspirational ideas for your own projects."
The books contents include:
frames & framing
ideas & design
transferring a design
working from charts
borders and patterns.
Despite the use of the word "embroider" what is shown here is indeed needlepoint. This book was published in England where needlepoint is commonly called Canvas Embroidery.
There are almost no charts in this book. You are expected to transfer the designs to canvas with line drawings. I was dismayed to see that myself but you may not mind it.
The designs and stitched samples shown are lovely.
The New Church Kneeler Book is a brand new glossy paperbound book. it was published by Search Press in England in 1997. it has 48 pages.
