This book aims to encourage embroiderers to enjoy stitches and stitching, and to explore the endless range of effects and textures which these can give. The book looks at over four hundred stitches and their variations. Each stitch is first presented in the traditional way of working, but suggestions follow for spacing and working it in more unusual ways, and with a wide variety of threads. A section on design starting points introduces the reader to the principles of observing natural objects and interpreting them for embroidery. Jan Beaney\'s book will help embroiderers go beyond traditional methods of working towards new methods.
