|We carry a variety of
books in soft and hard cover. Topics cover many
aspects of needlework both contemporary and
historical as well as reference books.
If you don't find a book you are after in our

carrying them, do buy locally when you can.

match and sometimes whether or not you enclose it

will get matches where either of the keywords
exists - a lot more than you probably want. For
most search you probably want to search for ALL
keywords and that is set as the default.
You'll find books with stitches generally in
either Counted-Thread or Canvaswork, although
books that cross techniques may be in Reference.
