The Embroidery Book by Christen Brown

This book is my favorite. We've already pulled a copy to keep on our bookshelf. The tagline for the book is "Visual Resource of Color and Design" and they are not kidding.

The book starts with a simple table of contents then a visual guide for the different if you know what the stitch looks like you do not have to flip from page to page...just check out the pictures and reference the stitch number...use that to figure out which stitch and the page number. Brilliant!!!

Then it delves into "All the Right Stuff" (photo 2)...and talks about fabric, stabilizers, trims, threads, buttons, etc.

We haven't even gotten to the stitching...

This book includes information on Color Theory, color families, Finding Harmony in your color palette.
