Embroidery legend Constance Howard brings her formidable knowledge of embroidery together with a creative and innovative approach to stitch. Demonstrating how spectacular textures, patterns and effects can be achieved in a few simple steps, this comprehensive guide encourages embroiderers to use stitch to its full potential, experiment with their own ideas and, above all, enjoy using stitch.

The versatility and scope of stitching is fully explored here. Working stitch in different threads, changing the scale and pacing, working carefully and freely, combining stitches to make new ones and altering the angle of the stitch are all considered. Each technique is easy-to-follow, with simple instructions and clear diagrams.
