What do I hope to find under the tree this Christmas? Well, I’ve been dropping hints about the Royal School of Needlework’s reference series.
Several years ago the RSN launched this series of books, each devoted to one needlework technique. Bead Embroidery, published in January, brought the series to eight books. The list price is £10.99 or $21.95. Amazon’s prices, oddly, range from $16.37 for Beadwork to $19.75 for Crewelwork and Goldwork. The books are showing up at used book sites like Half and Albris as well.
