Tips & Techniques for Needlepoint by Master Teacher Susan Sturgeon Roberts was recently dis-continued by my wholesaler. This is a great book and I was sorry it was no longer available.

I contacted the author (Susan) to ask if there was any chance this book might be available again and she had some copies of each in stock.

I have sold all the copies of this interesting & useful book that I had. I contacted Susan again and I have bought a whole print run from them. This is, by far, my largest ever buy of a single title.

This is a handy little book of advice by the well-known needlepoint writer and teacher Susan Sturgeon Roberts. She even has a EGA Master Craftsman designation (I am impressed)

This book is in a question and answer format. The questions are ones I have wanted to ask myself, some of them anyway and the answers are very clear and chatty.

She is not "talking down" to us in this book. I want to show you something. I usually do not show a second picture with a new book but I took the small stitched furry animal she has on the cover and enlarged him. This is TECHNIQUE and Ms Roberts has something to teach most of us if she can do this, this well.

This is a new paperbound book with a plastic spiral binding. It is self published by Susan Sturgeon Roberts in 2008.

It has 39 pages.
The Ups & Downs of Needlepoint by Fannie Highsmith
This is a very rare, almost unknown book by Fannie Hillsmith. it takes some serious research to find good condition copies. Each time I replace this book it costs me more As far as I can tell, this is her only book on Needlepoint. It was published in South Brunswick and New York by A.S. Barnes & Co. and in London by Thomas Yoseloff LTD in 1976. The book appears to be a "soup-to-nuts" needlepoint reference. The first chapter is titled "What Is A Stitch? and goes for 56 chapters more ... More Info

Free-Form Bargello by Gigs Stevens
There are so many things I love about this book. I love the unique idea, the forms and colors used and the author's name "Gigs". On the back over is her picture, she is a good looking blonde. I imagined "Gigs" would have been more unusual looking but you never know, do you? This book was published by Charles Scribner's & sons in 1977. I think it may be unique in it's subject. It is not yet a hard to find book, but I think it is terrific. I know many people have the idea that ... More Info

Father B's 21st Century Book of Stitches
This excellent book of needlepoint stitches is mentioned in the September/October issue of Needlepoint Now. I have just received my order of new copies of this book, so I am all set to sell & ship this book with no delay. Father B is The Rev. Robert E. Blackburn. This wonderful little book began life as an assemblage of stitches developed by the ANG, the American Needlepoint Guild as the Stitch of the Month. The first edition, published in 1982 had less than 100 stitches. They ... More Info

Florentine Embroidery by Barbara Muller
Florentine Embroidery is subtitled The Complete Guide to Working Florentine Stitches, From Choosing The Right Canvas To Blocking The Finished Embroidery with 50 Patterns to Stitch. (ok, I paraphrased a little) The instruction is clear & comprehensive. Some of the motifs shown are similar to the ones most all these books have but a few are unique. I used this book to help teach myself Bargello Needlepoint and I found it a *good teacher*. I know there is quite a bit of confusion out ... More Info
