From Mary Corbet's Needle 'n Thread - June 22, 2018 The RSN Book of Embroidery is an extensive, multi-technique-encompassing reference book that would make a good addition to any needleworker’s bookshelf. If you’ve wanted the content of the Essential Stitch Guides but were hesitant to collect each individual book, now you can have them all in one more affordable package – and that’s pretty neat! Beyond a simple stitch dictionary, a technique book can walk you through the basics (and beyond) of a particular embroidery technique. Individual technique books for different types of hand embroidery are fairly common, but imagine having a technique book that covers many of the major genres of hand embroidery all in one spot!
