Needlepoint Stitches – A Field Guide For Birds
By Carolyn Hedge Baird
Carolyn’s newest book is the answer to the prayers of perplexed bird stitchers everywhere. She loves birds and has stitched or written stitch guides for many. Her book starts with an introduction helping you understand the birds you’ll find on your canvas and how this affects stitch direction. Because birds’ feathers grow in one direction, the stitch needs to reflect this.
The book ends with a lengthy index of stitches, plus two smaller indexes of stitches for backgrounds and stitches where beads can be added. At just over 300 pages, this book is a fantastic resource.
