I am often asked by quilters which how to books would I recommend. This became very important at Mrs Martin’s Stitching at St. George, when we were working on a particular embroidery that used woven spider web roses. Generally, I recommend the A-Z of Embroidery, put out by Country Bumpkin, to people who are new to stitching. So imagine my surprise when I discovered that this particular stitch was not in that book. The other book that I use is the Mary Thomas’s book. This book is not so easy to locate at the moment, but it is quite comprehensive. I have included links to the Amazon pages for both these books.
What books do you use? Please reply in the comments.
