Church Needlepoint, designed for the beginner as well as the experienced needlepointer, covers every aspect of the craft.

The authors, Carolyn H. Kerr and Louise A. Raynor, provide a brief history of needlepoint as a religious art, sections covering the use of color, brands of yarn and types of canvas, instructions for stitches and for blocking and mounting the finished product. As important as these sections are, of greater importance is the section containing thirty-eight motifs - symbols of Evangelists, Apostles, Saints, the Church Year - all done in diagrammatic form for ease of use in needlepoint. Each motif is accompanied by a color code giving traditional or suggested colors for the execution of the design.

Suggested layouts, time saving tips, useful resources and completely illustrated instructions for reproducing religious symbols for use in needlepoint complete a beautiful and useful book.
