Description from the book cover:

“Whether your particular interest is pictorial, portraiture, abstract compositions, or actual text, you

can “say” almost anything with thread. More than 350 color photographs translate the techniques

of drawing, painting, and good composition into the world of stitch, and “Try This!” projects inspire

your own individual approaches. Including the role of machine stitching, this design resource,

learning tool, and inspirational reference helps practitioners at all levels, whether beginning student,

dedicated amateur, or professional. Take a lyrical—but logical—journey of skill building, and

begin to stitch intentionally and express your creative vision.”
