Synopsis

The Needlecrafters Companion: 1001 Stitch terms and techniques by Marie Clayton

Not sure what a particular word or instruction means in your sewing, knitting or crochet pattern? Forgotten how to do that attractive embroidery stitch? Or have you simply stopped a project midway because you were unfamiliar with a term or technique? It's nearly impossible to remember the countless terms and techniques, so it would only make sense to have a reference book on hand. 'The Needlecrafter's Companion' is the most comprehensive reference book of stitch and technique definitions for applique, crochet, embroidery, knitting, quilting and sewing as well as more specialist needlecrafts such as stumpwork, tatting and tailoring. Whether you want to learn a new skill or brush up on an old one, here is the ultimate A-Z illustrated guide to 1001 needlecrafting terms. Each entry provides a thorough meaning for each of its applicable crafts, while terms are cross-referenced to their US or UK alternatives where appropriate. Furthermore, many of the techniques are not only described, but illustrated with sequences of the stitches needed to do them, using clear step-by-step diagrams. From crafting enthusiasts to fashion students to industry professionals, needlecrafters of all skill levels will turn to this invaluable compendium time and time again.
