Barbara Elmore on Stitch Guides

Here is a charming essay on stitch guides and their writers by the incredibly talented Barbara Elmore.  The modern guides I've seen written by Beverly Churchfield and Wendy Harwood continue this tradition of hand drawn charts and notes, and the books by Carolyn Hedge Baird all have mostly hand written text and drawings to illustrate her points.

Interesting article.

As you already know, it is very difficult to make me stitch a painted canvas without a stitch guide :-)
