Crafty books

These are some of the Embroidery books I own.  As you can see I like to use floss to bookmark interesting pages. :)  My birthday is coming up in a month and I wouldn't mind adding a few good books to my 'library' so if you have any good tips please let me know! I'm especially looking for books with stitches and techniques, not so much books with patterns or projects (because I generally make my own). Tips for awesome quilting or sewing books are welcome too. Thanks!


  1. The embroidery stitch bible by Betty Barnden - I use this book so much!

  2. I like the stitch bible by Kate Haxell for stitches and different types of embroidery.
    The Fat Quarterly shape workshop for quilters book is fab, as is dare to be square quilting by Boo Davis XX

  3. I like a rainbow of stitches -it has embroidery and cross stitch. Ideas and charts not projects.

  4. Thank you all for your tips! I do already have a few of the books you mentioned like the Fat Quarterly book and a Rainbow of Stitches :)
