    I have been doing quilting and applique for years but I have never hand embroiderd before. The new pattern that I have decided to do has a mixture of patchwork and hand embroidery. I am wondering if anyone can suggest a good basic hand embroidery book with illustrations that you could reccommend.Thanks Jackie.

    Any of the books on crazy quilting has a selection of hand embroidery stitches. You can also google and find all kinds of free information, tuts, stitches, etc.

    Check at the public library there are a lot of good embroidery books out there. YouTube is also probably a good bet as you can watch the video as much as you need to.
