    I picked up three books whose authors have studied at the Royal School of Needlework. This one and it's companion in the series (Stumpwork) are simple enough to encourage a beginner to try the techniques but have enough detail to satisfy someone with some experience as well. The examples, some old and some very modern, are gorgeous. I picked up three books whose authors have studied at the Royal School of Needlework.

    A good basic introduction to crewel work with very clear pictures and descriptions as well as basic overview of Royal school of needlework and the history of crewel work. This contains no patterns but gives good examples of finished works. I would happily start practising these techniques now that I have finished reading it and will use it frequently when stitching.
