Bling, Glitz & Glamour for Needlepoint
by June McKnight

The shelves in your favorite needlework shops are just now being stocked with the newest in my series of instructional books, Bling, Glitz & Glamour for Needlepoint, hot off the presses!

The book is my largest endeavor yet, containing 222 pages with more than 70 examples of bling… needlepoint decorative stitches that utilize beads, pearls, rhinestones, crystals and sequins.

Clear diagrams, photos of finished stitching and lists of materials used accompany each example.

The very last chapter focuses on inspiration gleaned from the inaugural gowns of our First Ladies. The fifteen items in this category are an eye-opening taste of the magic of imaginative stitching.


Here are just a few samples of embellished stitching from the book
