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!
