I have two copies of Complete Encyclopedia of Needle-works. One copy was purchased in the in a used book store. I recently purchased the updated version from at a quilt show sale table.
Although, not all inclusive of all needlework techniques this book tries to include every one of them. The text is a little dry but the illustrations are sufficient enough to allow a person to learn how to do some of the techniques.

It is important to note that this is a book of great historical significance, and is not a go-to book for someone who is new to the craft of needlework. Newbies would be confused by all of the old techniques, many of which are no longer commonly used.
But anyone who is a fan of needlework and especially those who are interested in the history of needlework would want this in their library.

Theresa De Dillmont was a pioneer of techniques and an expert in all fields, and had this book never been written or her school opened , we would not have such a fun and popular hobby today.

I've been reading excerpts from it and seen it used in countless needlework magazines. This is my go to book for any questions about needlework, common or obscure. I recently pulled it for instructions on repairing a knitted item. This edition comes with a colourwheel to plan needlework projects.

Some of the terms have changed netting is called filet lace, draw thread work is embroidered lace but the language and illustrations are clear enough for modern use.
Feb 17, Helen rated it it was amazing. Judging by the stains on this little book, I have had it forever. It really is the only needlework reference one could ever need. Ninety percent of the contents is way beyond my skill level, but I can still spend hours admiring the illustrations. It is a must-have for anyone interested in needlework arts.
This is a great book to remind us that hand and needlework was once a part of everyday life and in today's "buy cheap and quick" we are looking these beautiful talents and the imagination that brought it to us in the first place.

ENCYCLOPEDIA OF NEEDLEWORK
The absolute want of any comprehensive book on needlework—such an one as contains both verbal and pictorial descriptions of everything included under the name of needlework—has led me to put into the serviceable form of an Encyclopedia, all the knowledge and experience, which years of unceasing study and practice have enabled me to accumulate on the subject, with the hope that diligent female workers of all ages, may be able, by its means to instruct themselves in every branch of plain and fancy needlework. All the patterns given, even the most insignificant, were worked afresh for the purpose, and thus, not merely faithful representations, but also lucid and intelligible explanations of the same, are secured. In order that my readers may have something besides the dull theory, the work is enlivened by a number of useful patterns, some new, some derived from the artistic productions of such countries and epochs as have become famous by special excellence in the domain of needlework. Though, at first sight, the reproduction of many of these patterns may seem to present insuperable difficulties, they will, after a careful study of the text, and exact attention to the directions given, prove easy to carry out.
