Here a stitch, there a stitch - part 2

Needlecrafter has a nice way of presenting embroidery stitches. The section is called Stitch Dictionary and is literally that. Everything is divided up alphabetically with word definitions and in some instances a potted history. A little eyeglass takes you to a black and white drawing of how to do each stitch e.g. Chevron Stitch - A primary embroidery stitch worked from left to right along parallel lines. Rows of Chevron Stitch can be stacked to make an attractive border or filling.
So if you are on the go a lot and learning embroidery why not print out a stitch or two to take along with you.
