Perna (Machine Applique) presents 29 handsome patternsfrom a sampler commemorating graduation to one displaying an intricate flower basketthat will attract a wide audience. Each design is preceded by color key charts for cross-stitch and backstitch, information on potential hazards and suggestions for fabric type and size, and for personalizing the pattern. Works are rated easy, moderate or challenging. Well planned for ease of use, the volume proffers color and black-and-white photographs of each completed sampler, as well as an enlarged charted graph. A chapter on materials and techniques, including finishing, is particularly helpful. In addition to family-record, alphabet and verse samplers, which form the body of the book, there are also many welcome patterns for letters and numerals in a variety of sizes.
