Our customer reviews

Unlike many stitch dictionaries, this one is laid out in a logical order with similar stitches grouped together in sensible categories. Lots of lots of variety, with a photo, written instructions and chart for each. Definitely the best stitch dictionary I own, and I own several!show more
