Better Homes and Gardens is know for supplying their readers with trustworthy, entertaining, and beautiful crafting projects. When it comes to their craft book, Embroidery: 35 Projects to Decorate, Celebrate, and Embellish, Better Homes and Gardens proves their reputation for excellence once again. This craft book features 35 different embroidery projects that span from basic embroidery crafts to some at more advanced levels. The different techniques that are highlighted in this collection included  crewel, sashiko, ribbon embroidery, cross-stitching, and redwork. Each one of the different projects included in this book is accompanied by full size images that display the completed project, the pattern, and steps along the way. The combination of pictures and in-depth instructions, make these project tutorials very simple to understand.

The final section, Basics, is meant to help beginners get started. This section displays a wide variety of the different stitches that those new to embroidery should know. While this section may be better suited for beginners, more advanced embroiderers can also use this informative section to sharpen their already developed skills. The other 3 sections of this book focus on projects for the home, holiday crafts, or handmade gifts.

The Holiday section boasts 10 projects tailored specifically for Christmas and Halloween. If you are looking for projects that can decorate your place all year round, turn to the Home section and spend some time embroidering a few towels for your kitchen or throw pillows for your living room. Finally, if you have a party or celebration coming up, there are 10 additional projects included in this book that make perfect gifts. There are patterns on how to make thank you cards, with an embroidered touch, handmade jewelry, and many others. Whether your looking to develop a new skill, focus on decorating for the holiday season, work on the home, or make a few handcrafted gifts, Embroidery: 35 Projects to Decorate, Celebrate, and Embellish is a wonderfully descriptive source for you to use.
