Willing Hands: The Counted Thread Embroidery of Betsy Morgan overflows with fabulous ideas and instructions for a wide variety of finished counted thread projects.

You can read my full review of Willing Hands by Betsy Morgan here.

The book focuses on counted thread techniques that are cleverly finished into 8 different etuis (needlework tool boxes) and 36 coordinating accessories, such as needlebooks, mini button boxes, pin keeps, scissor covers, fobs, and so forth.

Those who love counted thread techniques will delight in the charming charts that can stand alone as samplers, as decorative art, as small ornaments and the like, or that can be finished in the items illustrated in the book.

The finishing techniques in the book can certainly be adapted to other styles of needlework, too - so there is something for everyone in this gorgeous book from Inspirations Studios!


Willing Hands ships via Priority Mail to US destinations normally within 24 hours of purchase.

If you are pre-ordering the sequel, Willing Hands 2, shipping will be combined and both books will ship together.

If you are ordering another book or other items at the time, shipping will be combined to the best of my ability, but because of the irregular size of the books, some shipping combinations may not be possible and items may be shipped separately.
