This embroidery sewing instructional explains, with full illustration, over a hundred stitches by highlighting the spatial and geometric relations of the techniques using grids. Included are reusable, die-cut stitching cards to practice the techniques. The stitches are categorized from basic to advanced, and there are explanations for left-handed as well as right-handed stitchers. With clear photographs of each stitch being described, simple directions, and diagrams, the methodology provided in The Geometry of Hand-Sewing by Chanin is a unique and modern take on embroidery stitching.
