I was so surprised and happy when I received an advance preview copy of the new edition of Jo Ippolito Christensen's The Needlepoint Book direct from the publisher, Simon & Schuster! It's called the Needlepoint Bible for a reason, as this is one big and seriously heavy book, printed on beautiful paper in hardcover. This new edition has a much larger section of color photos than ever before, plus is fully updated to cover all the new advances in needlepoint (including an app, of course!) since the last edition. It could not have come out at a better time either, as it seems that needlepoint is on the cusp of a serious revival.
This book has made me even more enthused to see what excitement this year will bring the needlepoint world!
