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.
Sandy's Finishing Touches, Revised 2010 Edition by Sandy Higgins
Sandy's Finishing Touches is subtitled "A Step-By-Step Guide To Finishing Needlework. I thought this might be a great book to have for sale here, since I know I know almost nothing about finishing off the needlepoint I stitch, beyond blocking it. 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 ... More Info

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

The New York Times Book of Needlepoint by Elaine Slater
It is very difficult to get a salable copy for a reasonable price. Although this book was published in 1973 it is not dated at all, as current in design and instruction as any recent book. The New York Times Book of Needlepoint is one of the classic and I think important basic Needlepoint books. This is the book I learned to do Needlepoint from. it is set up to be easy to use and easy to understand. This book was published by Quadrangle/The New York Times Book Co. on 1973. There are ...
