Everyone loves a good stitch dictionary, but this one is something to see! With an author like Robyn Chachula, how can it not be a winner? Robyn teamed up with Wiley publishing to bring one of the most comprehensive (and pretty) stitch dictionaries I have ever seen. There are several special things about this book. For one it's HUGE. 272 pages. Full color. There is a Stitch diagram for EVERY pattern. I like how in the stitch diagram, there is a shaded area that shows you exactly where the repeat is! Not just stitches for rows, Robyn also included her signature motifs (and how to join them) and many new ones.
Here's another reason I'm excited: almost 30 pages of TUNISIAN stitches. YAY! That's 35 Tunisian stitch patterns.
Gasp! She has my new obsession (hint, hint): Bruges/Brussels Lace! I'm so glad to see this simple yet beautiful technique.
Textured sts, lace sts, motifs, colorwork patterns, and EDGING patterns. Embroidery stitch patterns, whew.
You can GET IT on Amazon for only $16.49. $16.49 for a HARDBACK, 272 page book. Incredible.
