You know, my friend Linda had brought over a slew of books on knitting from the library along with a book of hers titled “Reder’s Digest Complete Guide To Needlework”

  • Embroidery
  • Needlepoint
  • Knitting
  • Applique
  • Quilting
  • Patchwork
  • Macrame
  • Crochet
  • Rug-Making
  • Lacework
