Whether you are a beginner or a veteran, if you were to choose one book on needlepoint of the scores available, this is the one to have. Elaine Slater is not just an expert on needlepoint; she is also a teacher, and stitches are not merely described, they are carefully taught. Her own experience in her classes in Toronto teaching hundreds of women (and numerous men!) has given her a clear view of the pitfalls and difficulties most frequently encountered. She does not abandon the student at the end of a row, or when a boundary appears. Each step is shown in a series of crystal clear graphs - almost like a strip of movie film - illustrating just how a stitch is done. THIS and NOT THIS graphs show the mistakes most frequently made.An awesome and Very Valuable book!
