I initially wrote this book because, although information on the history of monogramming was available along with hundreds of alphabets, there was very little written on how you actually went about creating these lovely embroidered letters.
So, I collected together a wonderful variety of techniques, from simple to complex, and put them together with several projects just to get you started. Regardless of your skill level, you will find a technique that works for you.
The reprinted edition features a few minor adjustments including a new cover, so I do hope that you enjoy reading about this timeless style of embroidery and giving it a go.
