With Illustrations by Kurt Loftus. Left Handed Stitching is a very much overlooked subject in needlework. I know of only one other book on the subject, the New York Times Book of Needlepoint for Left Handers and it is so rare it is difficult to find. It is long out of print.
This is a more concise book, aimed at Embroiders and useful to Cross-Stitchers. There are instructions for 45 stitches using 96 drawings.
In the forward the author, Sally Cowan who is also the author of Left Handed Sewing, says that she has gone beyond the basic sewing stitches in her first book to concentrate on Decorative Stitching for left handers.
As the Daughter and Mother of left handers I can tell you that it can be difficult to be different.
Left Handed Stitchery is a medium size glossy paperbound book. It was published by Schiffler Publishing in 1987 and has 61 pages.
This copy is in Very Good Condition. The pages, covers and spine are all Very Good. This book, used, cost me as much as the retail price when it was new. Go figure.
This is the new book's picture. Current cover and inside pictures soon.
