Most commercial needlework kits recommend one of the variants of tent stitch, although Victorian cross stitch and random long stitch are also used. Authors of books of needlepoint designs sometimes use a wider range of stitches. Historically, a very wide range of stitches have been used including

This wasn't what I was expecting. I thought it would be a more thorough instruction on thread, et cetera. Just patterns.

The book delivers many patterns and ideas for needlepoint belts as promised. While I know it's not possible to have ALL of the patterns illustrated with actual needlepoint, it would have been nice to have more than just what is on the front cover.

Love this book, hard to find alphabet to fit a belt and these were great. Also other things in there to maybe keychains or belts yourself.

This is a pricy reference, but glad to have it on my bookshelf. Will definitely come in handy if I get back to doing my own personal designs.

This book contains belt patterns to please everyone! The book delivers on what it promises - a wonderful variety of needlepoint belt designs. Scott's attention to detail makes it easy to create a wonderful belt. The charts are simple to follow and the directions are clear. Your final needlepoint product is only limited by your own imagination (and the resources at your local needlepoint store). I especially like to work with bargello patterns and to use interesting yarns; Scott's designs are perfect for my interests. The format of the book is a plus. The binder enables me to remove the chart I'm working on and take it with me and my work, which is convenient.

Ann Scott is know for her innovative designs and this book is terrific. I recommend it to anyone who needlepoints.

I have to say the I REALLY wish this book had more information. Needlepoint belts remain a popular item and a book covering them would be really welcome.

There are several issues regarding needlepoint belts which need to be covered but aren't. The introduction is very short and, I'm afraid, gives me little help in the questions most stitchers will have when they want to make a belt. Some of these things, for example, how do I know how wide the belt should be, could be answered with a phrase (measure another belt). Others, like adding rows for finishing, could simply have a range of numbers.

I like that the book has so many charts of different motifs to put into a belt, but I'd really like to learn how to put them together. The lack is a hue fault in a book which is 99% charts. I'm buying the book because I want to design my own belt, I don't want to spend lots of time looking at belts which I'm not going to buy in the store to figure out how far apart to space my motifs. Couldn't she have given us guidelines?

She tells the reader to consult a needlework shop for thread suggestions, but the threads which work well for belts are pretty easy to recognize and guidelines and suggestions for choosing them could easily have been given.

I also would have liked to see some information about stitches. The stitches she gives all work for belts, but many needlepointers will do their own thing when it comes to stitches and, for belts, this might not work well.

After this short and not very helpful introduction the charts take over. They are divided into broad categories, with index tabs, which makes it helpful to find specific charts. Each category has a short introduction and chart in several different sizes. It might have been helpful to have had a section explaining how to use the charts and a table which translated the height of the pattern into size on common mesh sizes.

The charts are nicely placed and clearly labeled. An index at the end lists the different charts, but only gives section numbers, and not pages. This means I might have to look through the entire section to find the chart I want.

All in all, I felt as if this book was a good middle for a book on needlepoint belts, but was missing the beginning and the end needed to make it a really useful book. If you've already made belts and want to try your hand at designing your own, this book would be a worthwhile purchase, otherwise, I'd skip it.

I have been doing needlepoint since my Grandmother taught me at about age 6 and I love this book. At first I thought it was pricey then I realized that I only had to spend it once and I covered the cost of one custom designed canvas. I have used her patterns for things other than belts as well. As I often create my own designs, it is great to have it in a binder so I just add my own to it.
Thanks Ann Cady Scott, for doing the "thinking" for me.

The only resource I use for needlepoint belt making is Ann Scott's book. It is invaluable for creating my own designs and her alphabets are better than any I have seen. My experiences with different shops is that they have different requirements as to extra rows, amount of needlepoint covered by the leather and the like. Because of that there are differing ways of figuring your designs and the number of stitches between designs. The designs in this book are of two sizes counting from top to bottom and therefore are for the two most common scrim sizes- 18/" and 14/". She also has two sets of Signal Flags and Flags of Countries for the two scrim sizes.
