Have you ever tried to do a new stitch & found yourself utterly confused? I know I have.
My first step is to try to figure it out on my own. My second step is to follow the numbering on the diagram, if present.
This doesn’t always help.
Coming to our aid is the growing selection of animated stitch diagrams available at Stitch Guild (http://stitchguild.com/).
You can search the collection in alphabetical order, or by category, difficulty, speed, coverage, or compensation.
You can check just the newest stitches and even create a collection of your favorites.
This is one of the best stitch reference sites out there.
