A great part of the charm of embroidery is the expression of individuality in the work. This can be attained by the careful study and practice of stitches and groups of stitches, as this study will lead naturally to combining and arranging them into pleasing shapes and repetitions -- pattern-making and designing.
Originally published in 1929, this book first builds up orderly and balanced designs on embroidery stitches and group of stitches, and then presents a variety of suggestive patterns. Some of the patterns shown in the book are more suitable for experienced embroiderers.
