Winner: Best Needlepoint Book
The Needlepoint Book: A Complete Update of the Classic Guide is a revised and updated version of its 1976 version. This book is known as the one book that every needlepointer needs to own, because no matter how many times you read it, you’ll always refer back to it for pointers and ideas. It teaches you the elements of good design, how to choose the perfect project, transferring designs, finishing techniques and so much more. It even includes sections on left-handed needlepoint, so lefties don’t have to figure it out on their own. The author, Jo Ippolito Christensen has been practicing needlepoint for 30 years and offers some of the best guidance available for beginners. This book doesn’t skip a single beat, which is why it has been known as the complete guide for needlepointers from their first project to their hundredth.
If you typically needlepoint for holiday decorations or gifts, you might be disappointed that the author limits the number of holiday design ideas in the book. But as long as you’re creative, this is certainly a flaw you can look beyond.
