The Constance Howard Book of Stitches


Embroidery legend Constance Howard brings her formidable knowledge of needlework to this creative, innovative, and comprehensive guide to stitching. Using her techniques, and the dozens of close-up photographs and diagrams, it's remarkably easy to create spectacular textures, patterns, and effects in just a few simple steps. See what happens when a stitch is worked in different threads, and learn how to change the scale of a stitch, combine stitches to make new ones, and alter the angle of the stitch. And it's amazing how much is covered: seeding, Japanese darning, a variety of stem stitches, buttonholes and variations, the twisted fly, herringbone, cable chain, zigzag coral, Portuguese border, detached loop, and many, many more. It will enhance any embroiderer's stitching repertoire. Hide synopsis
