Are you frustrated by right-handed embroidery instructions and having to mentally flip them, use a mirror, or substitute right for left and vice versa? Be frustrated no more! Written by a left-hander, this stitch dictionary shows you the LEFT way to do embroidery.
Written in Yvette Stanton's clear, step-by-step style, this book will be your constant embroidery companion as it shows how to do over 170 stitches comfortably and sensibly, for you as a left-hander. Surface stitches and counted thread stitches are carefully explained, with many helpful diagrams and photos.
Right-handed teachers will appreciate the right-handed diagrams showing the difference between what they and their left-handed students do.
