  • Includes a list of needlepoint decorative threads and how to use the various fibers.
  • Several pages at the back of the book are dedicated to a stitch journal where you can keep project notes.
  • The stitches are listed alphabetically with an index at the rear.
  • For a condensed version of this book, with 300 stitches, check out the Stitches To Go book—a great option to take traveling or keep beside your stitching chair.
  • Authors: Suzanne Howren and Beth Robertson
  • The book is spiral-bound and opens flat which is useful when you want to reference the stitch diagram as you stitch.
  • First published in 1996 this needlepoint reference book is one of the best resources for stitchers who want to advance their skills. It is best suited to needlepointers who already have a good grounding in the basics.

"We would like you to first think about how you want an area to look—do you want it shiny, matte or textured? Then, think about whether you want to emphasize the stitch or the thread or the color. These considerations help you choose the right thread and the right stitch to create the effect you want." An excerpt from the How To Use This Book section of Stitches For Effect by Suzanne Howren and Beth Robertson.

Stitches For Effect is not aimed at needlepoint beginners, but this book below is! It's a great resource if you are starting out in needlepoint. Read about it on our blog post and find it on Amazon.
