In this collection of Embroidery Stitches, I have endeavoured
to place before those artists who are interested
in needlecraft an exposition of the most useful and artistic
stitches that have formed a part of my own work during
several years' study and practice of Art Embroidery.

Some of these will be familiar to Needle-artists : others will serve to
exemplify how, in process of working, fresh stitches may be
evolved from old ones ; or how, when originality gains ground
entirely new stitches become apparent and workable.

A point somewhat overlooked in Art Embroidery is the fact
that each separate stitch is a design in itself.

If this principle be fully recognised, the necessity for careful and systematic
study of the forms and functions of Embroidery Stitches will
immediately become obvious to the student and worker.

Embroidery Stitches is planned with a view to facilitating
reference, and to affording immediate conception of the intimate
connection between illustration and explanation.

To attain this end, the illustrations are placed in uniform spaces
throughout the volume, two on each page ; and in each case
the description appears opposite its corresponding design.

In this the arrangement differs from that of other Needlework
manuals, in affording that clearness, sequence, and finality, so
agreeable to the worker, which becomes impossible where illustrations are
interspersed at irregular intervals in a continuous letterpress.

Every endeavour has been made to ensure simplicity and
point in the directions ; and where possible in a book of this
size, suggestions have been given for the application of stitches
to useful purposes.

The alphabetical system of arrangement has been adopted,
as being most suitable for a book of reference.

In the comparatively few cases in which one stitch is known
by two names, the design has been repeated under the different
headings, to maintain clearness and alphabetical sequence.

This book is a wonderful addition to my craft library and is an excellent value! All the publications I purchased from HowToBooks were beautifully scanned and offered clear, full-size and scaleable pages. The files all downloaded, opened & printed perfectly as well. I'm so pleased with all the books I bought and am looking forward to future purchases at this amazing Etsy shop.
