The book aims to show the enormous scope of stitches, their versatility, the fascinating textures and patterns obtainable with them, and the variety that is possible in working a stich in different threads, changing its scale and spacing, working carefully, working freely, combining stiches to make new ones or altering the angle of the stitch. With the aid of the Tunbridge Wells and District Branch Embroiderers' Guild a large number of experiments have been carried out, many of which are used here to illustrate some of the versatility of even the simplest of stitches. It is hoed that from these results the reader will be inspired to try out more ideas for themselves and to enjoy using stitches.Read Less
