Variety of stitches

Posted by Persia (My Page) on

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.
