I learned to embroider when I was a kid, when everyone was really into cross stitch (remember the '80s?). Eventually, I migrated to surface embroidery, teaching myself with whatever I could get my hands on...read more

A Really Good Deal on A-Z Needlework Books!


Amazon Books

The A-Z series of needlework books is by far the best and most thorough series of needlework books on the market. They’re published by Country Bumpkin in Australia, and they cover a terrific range of needlework – all kinds of embroidery techniques, as well as sewing, knitting, crochet, and quilting.

The A-Z needlework books usually run about $33 US per book, a price that is somewhat steep, especially considering that they’re rarely available through discount outlets like Amazon. On the other hand, I have to admit that, for certain books in the series, I think the price tag is worth it. The A-Z of Goldwork, for example, is a must-have for anyone interested in metal thread embroidery.

Well, there’s a good deal going at Wooly Thread right now on some excellent A-Z books, specifically:

A-Z of Stumpwork
A-Z of Wool Embroidery
A-Z of Embroidery Stitches 2
A-Z of Threadpainting
A-Z of Embroidered Flowers

Right now, through Wooly Thread, you can order any of the above for just $15. If you’re interested in knitting, the paperback copy of A-Z of Knitting is available for $18.

Of the A-Z books listed above, the only ones I can’t vouch for through personal experience are Embroidered Flowers and Knitting. The rest are in my library, and I have referred to them innumerable times – they are excellent! Based on the quality of all the A-Z books, though, I’m sure these two are equally as good.

So, hurry on over to Wooly Thread to build your stitching library with these good deals, while the sale’s on!

  1. I didn't know there was an Embroidery Stitches two book. Am so excited! And did you notice they have a couple of rare Inspirations magazines on sale for only $8.00 each (and they go for up to $60 on the Country Bumpkin site)? Am so glad I checked out the site. THANKS!

  2. I have seen a couple of these titles in my fav book store; but usual story – no money at the moment.

    It's amazing how another mouth to feed can severely dent the personal spending budget – esp when he's a man mountain.

  3. Hi All!. I'm Jan from the Wooly Thread. I knew something was up when I suddenly had a huge number of orders for these books. When I found out you were all from Needle N Thread, I just had to come over here for a visit. Thanks for visiting my site. It was good getting to know some of you.
