Start by marking Mary Thomas's Dictionary of Embroidery Stitches as Want to Read: Want to Read savin. ant to Read. A comprehensive book with lots of background info on each stitch, where to use it and best materials to use for the stitch. Great tips and tricks as well. The only drawback is the s on how to complete specific stitches are sometimes lacking in clarity. A treasure trove of embroidery stitches accompanied by full color photos and drawings. If you are experienced, I would rate this a 5; for a beginner like me, it's a 4 because I do not yet have the foundation to understand the rather complicated directions.

This is an outstanding reference book that will enable all needle-workers to master the art of embroidery.

You've provided me a lifetime of new tricks. Of course, at age 88 that lifetime may not be as long as some
but that lifetime is richer for this book. excellent quality - timely delivery.. Thank you!

If you are a "visual" person, you may have trouble with this book. I am not a beginner to embroidery/needlework and, after reading all the good reviews, bought this book to learn some of the more complicated stitches. When I actually sat down to study some of them I was very disappointed. Each stitch has drawings meant to show the steps to complete them; however, the drawings weren't really clear so I then read the written instructions, which also didn't help. This was written as a reference book and should have clearer instructions. It most likely will never be used by me.

Seems like a good book. Instructions are very clear. My only problem with it is that I am a beginner, and therefore don't know what kind of fabric I'm using. The stitches are grouped by type of fabric they are used on. I will definitely use it as a reference book.
Marilbine
This is a really useful guide for reference, although I don't find the instructional pictures to be super helpful. For a brand new beginner, I would recommend a book with clearer pictures, but for someone who has mastered basic stitches and wants to figure out fancier ones, this is a good fit.

I love this book. I've embroidered, but it's impossible to remember all of the stitches & this book does a wonderful job of showing the stitch & explaining clearly & easily how to do the stitch. There are over 400 stitches included & around 100 are new stitches! One chapter covers pulled fabric stitches, another art form of embroidery. She teaches you about what kind of fabric/canvas to use as well as what kind of thread/yarn to use. I found myself reading this book & will continue to do so. The Photography is gorgeous. While showing how to do the stitches, there's quite a few pictures of vintage pieces that are exquisitely shot by the photographer. I wasn't paid for this review & if I had been, I don't believe I would have said one thing different, cause if you love to do needlework, you're short changing yourself if you don't get this book. You will miss out on a treasure.

I own this book and I have bought several copies to gift others. This is one of the best books for embroidery stitches. There are many stitches - specifically the laid work stitches - that are difficult to find in other books. These are beautiful stitches and well worth the price of the book to have.
ACOS
Love this book of embroidery stitches, though it's an older book the stitches hold the test of time and are still applicable with today's hand stitching. The instructions are clear and concise, pages are filled with color and easy to read print. I would recommend this book for the beginner and veteran hand embroiderer there is something for all.
Although there are many diagrams in this book, they don't show you how to do the stitch. If you want to make the stitch you have to read the directions on how-to. I prefer to actually see the stitch form via diagrams. Therefore for me the book has limited use. So if I see a stitch I like I will have to go to the internet to see a video.
