Embroidery and Cross-Stitch Basics Plus More Than 1,000 Motifs and 80 Project Ideas
A Rainbow of Stitches is the ideal book for beginners who want to learn the basics of cross stitching and also get a huge amount of project ideas. The beauty of this book is that you can buy it as your first cross stitching book, and you won’t need to buy another for years. This will be your go-to book even when you do buy new cross stitch books. It teaches you how to cross stitch, but gives you beginner to advanced motifs once you’ve learned the trade. And don’t be afraid that you’ll be stuck with one kind of design, the author provides an incredible amount of motifs for cross stitchers young and old and with all kinds of interests.
Cross stitchers with extremely advanced skills and who like using tons of colors will be upset that this book focuses a lot on one color stitching on a single color background. If you’re seeking tons of unique ideas and are bored with traditional cross stitch books, you’ll truly love this one.
