Praise for Kate Haxell’s The Stitch Bible
“A comprehensive guide. It’s such a modern and up to date book yet it wonderfully covers many types of traditional stitch from Blackwork, Hardanger, Crewel, and Goldwork all the way to the anything goes of Freestyle Embroidery. Great for folks wondering where to start, this book has projects. Beautifully presented and easy to follow, The Stitch Bible would make a top notch gift to self or others.” —Peaceofpi Studio
