Embroidery Study Group - Stitch Books

I only have a few Embroidery Stitch Books.  As the group progresses, I'm sure I'll hear form you all about more books.  Below is a list of Embroidery Stitch books I have or I have had recommended to me. 

The Craft of Crewel Embroidery.  Erica Wilson.  1971.  Charles Scribner's & Sons.  This is the stitch book form my teen years & have schlepped it around for years.

Stitch Sampler.  Lucinda Ganderton.  1999.  DK Books.  A more modern stitch book with colorful DK-style pictures.  Well organized.

ANY of the Alabama Chanin Books, these are particularly relevant for this Study Group:

The Geometry of Hand-Sewing: A Romance in Stitches and Embroidery from Alabama Chanin and the School of Making.  Natalie Chanin.  2017.  

Alabama Studio Sewing + Design:  A Guide to Hand-Sewing an Alabama Chanin Wardrobe.  Natalie Chanin.  2012.  Abrams Books.
