"This book is filled with all the information you need to begin (sampler stitchery)and to perfect the art of traditional and contemporary sampler stitching, including how to select yarns, threads, canvas, and all the necessary equipment for working with ease and in comfort; how to enlarge patterns and alter charts; how to find the right supplies from neighborhood shops or mail-order houses; all the stitches for working each project; details on finishing and blocking - and much, much more."
This is a nice hardback published in 1982; has a beautifully illustrated dust cover. The book has many diagrams, illustrations, and some color photos of completed projects.
