My favoriate book to learn by - any fiber craft!
If anyone out there want's to learn nearly any fiber craft/needle craft and you can find this book... BUY IT!!!! This is a wonderful book covering many crafts with detailed diagrams, directions, abbreviation codes, photos, stitch patterns and a history of each craft. Verry fascinating to simply read. It does have some patterns in it but it gives more in the line of stitch patterns so you can make your own things. Click on the photos for a close up and I also scanned the back and you can see all that it coveres. It was copy wright in 1979
You can often find copies at Amazon
It appears the same book was re-issued (yet still out of print) under a different name. available also at amazon the step by step needlecraft encyclopedia
I have not seen this book but based on the author, contents and chapter layout it appears to be the same book.
