Apples on a Stick

my favorite is: "The Complete Encyclopedia of Stitchery" by Ryan. It is out of print now, but there are used copies on Amazon.

Thanks for putting together an online guide, I'll be sure you guide people there!


Cool. :0)


Love the little girl, what a pretty design!


The dancing girl design is so cute. Thank you for the basic embroidery stitch design--you're right, those seem to be the stitches I use most often. I have also quite enjoyed Primrose Design's Stitch School posts and have learned so much.


That little girl is very charming! Thank you for the stitch reference guide--very helpful! Happy Day :o)


You've created such a wonderful business and a beautiful blog Vicki. You've always been so great about sharing all sorts of things. A stitch guide is icing on the cake! Thank you. I appreciate it all, especially the friendship you've shown me.
Take care.


What a cute little Heidi! Is that pattern available from your PatternBee site?

Thank you for the stitch guide - very helpful!

I love that little stitched girl--so cute. And it's really generous of you to share an online stitch guide. Personally, I'm addicted to chain stitch for outlining everything. I love that it makes a heavy dark mark. Maybe I should branch out, though. I find satin stitch to be the most challenging (now that I have finally mastered the French knot).


What a cute dancing girl! I love embroidering... I'll have to check out your patterns! I came across your site a few days ago, and have enjoyed the vintage style. :-)


I can't wait to check out the guide. I'm not a very crafty person but I learned to embroider as a child and have forgotten many of the stitches. Thanks.


I have been looking for a site like yours for years!! I will placing an order to you soon. I love all the old patters and they are very hard to find. Bravo for having this business. I look forward to stitching all fall and winter :)


The embroidered girl is adorable and thanks for the embroidery guide.


what a cute ebroidery design... I love it!!! Thanks for the emboirdery guide too. I want to learn really bad and only know like 2 stiches, so this helps out!


I've never tried embroidery but its on my list. Your girl is so pretty.

I am just starting to learn embroidery, so your guide will be great to keep beside me. Thanks!


Thanks for the stitch guide--it's just what I've been looking for!
