PRESERVING BERRIES IN STITCHES

Strawberry shortcake or raspberry torte, blueberry pie or blackberry jam -- if you're a berry lover, it's hard to choose a favorite. Usually it's a matter of what's on the menu or what's available at the market.

Wouldn't it be great to have a variety of fresh berries all year long? You can, with the help of a new, 17-page counted cross stitch guidebook. Whatever your favorite -- blackberries, blueberries, raspberries or strawberries -- the book has projects that feature them all.

In addition to step-by-step instructions and full-size charts that provide the "recipes" for 14 delicious designs, the guidebook also contains tips and techniques about fabrics, threads, stitches, finishing your projects and more.

Designs include "Berry Sampler," "Berry Compote" and "Berry Wreath" (all pictured), as well as "Blackberry Heart," "Blueberry Table Linens," "Raspberry Heart," "Strawberry Basket," a berry coaster collection and six more.

The Cross Stitch Berries, Berries, Berries guidebook, No. AN3681, is $6.95, including postage and handling. Please allow three to four weeks for delivery (for rush delivery, add $1 per item up to $3 maximum).
