Father B's 21st Century Book of Stitches by the Rev. Robert E. Blackburn Jr. is the sixth edition of the Father B's Stitches Books. Originally published in 1982 for the American Needlepoint Guild through the stitch of the month which was published in Needlepointer's Magazine. This edition is the sixth and has been enlarged to about 350 stitches. Many of these stitches are original and not available elsewhere, while some are very old stitches which needlepointers have forgotten. This needlepoint book is a wonderful reference book for all stitchers!
