Learning Books

"First Steps in Counted Cross Stitch" - by Rita Weiss of American School of
Needlework, begins by introducing the fabrics and threads before continuing with
the stitching lessons. This new, revised version includes an introduction to stitching
on Linen - $4.00
"
Teach Yourself Silk Ribbon Embroidery" - Learn to embellish clothes and linens
with silk ribbon. All the usual embroidery stitches are covered as these are
translated to using ribbon as the fiber, as well as some of the speciality stitches
such as Chain Stitch Rose, Couched Ribbon Bows,  Japanese Ribbon Stitch,
Loop Stitch, and others - $7.00
"
Teach Yourself to Embroider" - From the Kooler Design Studio this covers the
basics from fabrics, threads, and tools through some delightful designs on clothes
and linens, as well as some bookmarks and sachets plus a beautiful summer
bouquet bellpull.! - $10.95
"
A Beginner's Guide to Cross Stitch on Vinyl Weave" - As well as a great way
to start the hobby of cross-stitch (vinyl weave doesn't fray or crumple and doesn't
need a hoop) you create some useful, everyday objects - coasters, placemats,
book covers, book marks, cup inserts, and even a placemat for your pooch or
kitty!  - $4.50
"
Floralace in Duplicate Stitch" - This was a new one to me! If it is to you too, this
is the art of over-stitching or "duplicating" a knitted stitch to create an overlaid
pattern. Great for those boringly plain sweaters. Once the art is mastered you
could try using any cross-stitch pattern that has only full cross-stitches! - $4.00
