Snyder, Julie   Spencer, Patricia   Strite-Kurz, Ann   Strite-Kurz, Ann
176 Amazing Stitches To Unlock Creativity   Twister, A Needlework Design   Science of Canvas Embroidery   Canvas Applique
This is the first book in Julie’s amazing series. She delivers some great stitches and this book started a word of mouth campaign and I’ve had to happily order these a jillion times (or so it seems). Her long and narrow format appeals as do the clear graphs. Learn what to use each stitch for. Thanks, Julie.   I love this design and it looks so different depending on the colors you use. Has all the instructions, threads, materials needed to finish this great project. I know this was out-of-print but I have lots of copies since I requested another printing for me.   She gives you logical answers to stitching dilemmas such as ways to plan and manipulate stitch sequences to achieve optimum canvas coverage and backing needs, how to prevent and or eliminate awkward compensation with the use of proper planning and more.   This well-known designer and teacher focuses here mainly on techniques of traditional appliqué when mono canvas is used. In step-by-step format.
