Variety of stitches

PersiaApril 23, 2005

Hi there. I am a new member and this is my first message.I am a keen embroiderer and love to make pictures , maybe from photos or ideas from books ( Cannot draw myself!!) Whenever I look for inspiration in embroidery books they almost all only list cross stitch. Our public library has 62 books on cross stitch, 3 on quilting and 3 on general embroidery. Is this common around the world or only in UK and Spain?

Where can I find more inspiration for new stitchery and ideas for pictures?

Any ideas would be welcome.


Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

look for old erica wilson books on crewel embroidery. great stuff.
