Hi, fellow stitchers!

As I sit at my computer writing new material for the upcoming newly revised edition (third) of The Needlepoint Book, I wonder what you would like to see included in this new edition.

What stitch techniques would you like to learn or see clarified?

What stitching challenges might I be able to help with?

What stitches would you like to see diagrammed and photographed?

What is the hardest part of interpreting a painted canvas for you?

My goal is to include what information I can that will help you with your stitching.

Thanks for thinking about it!!
