I hope you find this needlework dictionary useful and with it able to improve your hand embroidery skills.

A TIP FOR LEFT HANDERS:

If you normally have problems following embroidery illustrations the computer can help you. Copy and save the image. In a graphics program flip the image horizontally so that you have a mirror image. Work from this and you will find it makes sense and feels right!
