Here is a wonderful book that is full of NEEDLEWORK PATTERNS AND TECHNIQUES and instructions!
"The Encyclopedia of Needlecrafts", by Lucinda Ganderton and Dorothy Wood was published by Hermes House, an imprint of Anness Publishing Limited in New York, NY, 1998. The dust jacket was printed in Germany.
It includes over 200 original projects, with step-by-step colored photographs and step by step instructions for every traditional American needlework with hundreds of graphs, diagrams and chart that touch on a wide variety of ways to use needlepoint, some of which include, embroidery, needlepoint, quilting, patchwork, applique, knitting, crochet, cross stitch, ribbons, tassels, beading, tapestry, smocking, and even buttons!
This hardback book is in great condition with some wear around the edges of the plastic dust jacket. There is a small note handwritten from a mother to her daughter on the inside title page.
This book is the perfect hobby for a creative mind.
