Summer Louise Truswell, self-published, 1999-2005.
Before Summer Truswell retired from active designing she collected her various finishing
techniques and essays about needlework and published this book. In addition she spiced
the book with 11 designs and tons of photos.
Several of the subjects covered and illustrated, show great techniques for needlepoint,
such as using scroll vars or attaching beads.
While aimed primarily at folks who stitch on fabric, many of the finishing ideas and
projects will work for needlepoint. The photos are exact and cover each step of the design.
The book also includes blank pages for notes and two pages of stitch diagrams.
