UK–based needlecraft designer Schofield, who publishes patterns under the brand the Stitching Shed, presents the essentials of needlepoint in this project-focused pattern collection. The 20 designs are stitched in half-cross, a simple stitch often used in beginners’ needlepoint and in needlepoint kits because it uses less fiber than stitches with better canvas coverage. Schofield’s color palette is bright and bold, and the motifs are cheery, including several floral designs, animals, and insects (e.g., fish, butterflies, sheep, and a reindeer), and baby carriages in both a boy and a girl color scheme. The charts are full-color and generously sized, making them easy to read, and the key supplies both descriptive color names for the fiber and the number of the Anchor tapestry wool used in the model. A two-page summary of needlepoint principles is included, but novice stitchers may wish to consult an additional reference, such as Jo Ippolito Christensen’s The Needlepoint Book. VERDICT Needlepoint is due for a resurgence— we’ve already seen it with crossstitch and embroidery—and this brief guide provides a no-fuss, no-frills entry point for those new to the craft.
