Stitches: New Approaches is a reprint of a book published in 1985. It is not intended to be a comprehensive stitch dictionary, but rather, a guide to what can be done with a stitch and some imagination. Each stitch has a large number of photographs, all in black and white.

Forty different hand-embroidery stitches, plus a host of creative ideas for using them, generate a range of amazing textures that will delight anyone who enjoys needlework. In what will clearly become a classic of the craft, Jan Beaney analyzes in detail the eye-catching effects that an embroiderer can achieve through the use of different background fabrics, unusual threads, and various needles. She asks questions such as “Can the stitch be worked in circles?” and “Can it be worked upside down?” and illustrates some of the possible answers. All the orthodox methods of working a canvas are discarded; unique, original techniques reign, and the colorful photos show the wonderful results.

I am surprised this book did not get better reviews from others. As a fiber artist and teacher I found it to be an extremely comprehensive book on stitchery and design as are all the books authored by Jan Beaney. As the title suggests, it covers `new approaches' to traditional stitching celebrating the new without scorning the old. In addition to showing contemporary manipulations of traditional stitches, it has a tutorial on design inspirations, observing the world around you to glean ideas to interpret in stitching. There is a section on rendering a design using only one kind of stitch and the reader is challenged to create a piece of stitchery in this fashion; the various examples of this are shown in a wide range of solo stitch designs to open your mind to the possibilities one technique can offer. It is a book worth reading cover to cover. If there is any single detractor perhaps it is that it is not a 'stitch encyclopedia' that gives step-by-step instructions for creating the stitches themselves but anyone with a basic familiarity with embroidery will already know most of the stitches and if not, a basic 'how to' booklet on working basic stitches can be used to help the inexperienced embroiderer interpret the methods. I already own several of those types of books, what I am interested in now are books to inspire me to explore my own design possibilities, not copy other people's patterns or learn how to embroider.

First of all, this is a reprint of a 1985 book, which should be clearly stated in its description. Secondly, have you ever seen an embroidery book without a single color photo? And with hardly any explanation of stitches? The entire book consists of black-and-white photos of different embroidery stitches in use in finished works. The book has scant text, most of it descriptions such as "Blocks of detached buttonhole worked in thick, thin, shiny and matt threads," which might be helpful if the photos were in color and you could see the difference. The book also has such "useful" suggestions as "Try working the stitch very tightly or in a loose manner."

Jan Beaney is a master but this 20-year-old book is an anachronistic dinosaur compared to the newer books available, including Jan Beaney's own Stitch Magic and her series of booklets published by Gemini Press.

I'm going to return this book, as I find it of no use at all.

I was disappointed in this book. There was very little hands on
technique for each stitch. Which left me with very little enthusiasim to
figure out on my own how to execute the stitches.

There is also advice on developing a design, starting from sketching. This is intended as a design text, so there are no patterns included. The goal of this book seems to be to provide a solid base on which to develop a stitched design.

I have to agree with the other reviewers, I would have liked to have known most of the the photos in the book are black and white, and was a reprint from the 80's. They do insert some color photos, and that only makes you want to see the whole thing in color! Jan Beaney, and her partner, Jean Littlejohn are real masters of this media..I'd recommend their newer endeavors, the booklets they have been producing with Double Trouble Enterprises are invaluable. I'm not sure if I'm keeping this one, but definately seek out their newer work.
