From a monogrammed cuff to a sampler featuring your favorite saying... Letter Perfect is the indispensable guide for needleworkers everywhere who want to say it - with words!

This marvelous collection of alphabets features styles to suit your every mood - from Old English to "carved" Roman to Art Nouveau, from plain, solid block letters to whimsical florals and flowing "ribbons". Whether you prefer embroidery or counted work, candlewicking or trapunto, you'll find the alphabets - including lower case letters and numerals - to meet your needs and to inspire exciting future projects for hours of needlework pleasure.

Letter Perfect is an easy-to-follow guide offering instructions for stitches appropriate to each alphabet, solutions to such common problems as spacing and scale, expert advice on materials and tools, and a host of clear, detailed photographs. A special section features instructions for a variety of needlework borders - from scrolls and trellises to a handsome colonial look - so you can add the perfect finishing touch to your work.

Now you can stitch everything from names to titles to mottoes and aphorisms - and they'll all be Letter Perfect.
