This excellent new book is in stock for immediate delivery.
I have had a chance to look through the book, I think this is a very useful book.
It begins with instructions on how to use the book, then a glossary of terms (I too am sometimes confused by terms used. How many of us know the difference between Filament silk & Chinese silk thread? Not me)
Then there is a large section describing, in detail, each kind of thread (would you know what "Pepper Pot Silk* or "Treenway Serenity" was?, not me)
Then the stitches section. There are a lot of stitches, some new to me (Jo-Jo Stitch?) as well as specific stitches for boots or belts, rugs, floors, small spaces, large spaces etc.
A complete index. The only thing I should mention is that the text & all the diagrams are in black & white. I did find the stitch graphs easy to read & understand.
Below is a quote Jane got from Sally at Rainbow Gallery, they are wholesaling the book
" "I have the #1 book right from the printer out of the box yesterday, and read it last night. It is an excellent book giving ideas and encouraging new stitchers to make that first painted canvas purchase. Tons of info on threads of all types plus stitches categorized by which area they would best be suited for your canvas. Just a personal note about this book, I love the way Carole and Michael have written this, not too wordy--not too technical, you can see that they have a passion about this, and for the average garden variety stitcher it will be a fantastic tool."
That about says it all, for now.
