My rating: 5 of 5 stars
You don't exactly read a book like this in one setting, but I find myself turning to it constantly. Some have called it the Bible of needlepoint, and I agree. Everything you need to know about needlepoint is there, from choosing a project, design elements, basic procedures, stitching techniques, color theory, and decorative stitches to blocking and finishing. There are hundreds of stitches each with a picture and chart showing the order they are worked. The charts are easy to read and comprehensive. They are grouped so that the reader can easily choose among similar stitches without having to flip back and forth.
