This includes a look at the history, a well chosen selection of designs and motifs from around the world, followed by a chapter of exciting projects for beginners as well as advanced needleworkers. This book also shows how simple it is to transfer a favorite design or illustration into cross stitch, and to enlarge or reduce the size of illustrations. Many of these ideas and designs have been collected by Mary Gostelow on her travels and is a particular feature of this book.
