I've been asked about the stitches I use for my crazy quilt and embellishing. I have some in my head that I've learned over the years. I also use three sources frequently. One is online - The Stitch Dictionary at Pintangle. Check it out for examples as well as how to do the stitches. Two others are these small books - Judith Baker Montano's Elegant Stitches and Coats & Clark's One Hundred Embroidery Stitches, a 34 page booklet I've had since I was in high school (note - it cost 50 cents new!)
What are your favorite sources for crazy quilt stitches?
