Just wanted to let you know about a new left-handed book that has been published: "The Left-Handed Embroiderer's Companion: a step-by-step stitch dictionary" by Yvette Stanton.

I am a left-handed embroiderer and embroidery teacher and for some time I have enjoyed the enthusiasm of my left-handed students when they have realised that they have a left-handed teacher for their embroidery class.

I therefore decided that if they loved having a lefty teacher so much, maybe others would too, so I packaged myself up in a book to teach left-handed embroiderers the left-handed way to stitch comfortably and easily.

The book has over 170 different stitches which includes stitch variations, and features counted thread stitches, needlepoint stitches and surface embroidery stitches, all explained in a step-by-step format, with diagrams for each step.

You can find more about "The Left-Handed Embroiderer's Companion" at the Vetty Creations website. It is available for purchase in all good needlework stores (if they don't have it, ask them to get it!) and direct from Vetty Creations.

But don't just take my word for it that it is a great book, you can also read Mary Corbet's in depth review of the book at Needle'nThread.
