Stitchopedia || Helen Winthorpe Kendrick

Do you see what they did there? It’s a clever portmanteau word that sums up exactly what this book is about, namely, a thorough collection of embroidery stitches.

I’m not qualified to say whether it lives up to its strapline: “the only embroidery reference you’ll ever need”, but it claims to include blackwork, canvas work, crewel work, hardanger, pulled work and stumpwork. To a non-specialist, it certainly looks the part and the instructions seem admirably clear and well laid out.
