“Touch Me. Feel Me. Threads: A Predictable Results Book” by Janet Perry and Art Needlepoint, ISBN-13:978-1499370195
When I started veering away from DMC cotton floss, I discovered that there was a lot I didn’t know about thread. I really didn’t understand some of the basics: the different kinds of fibers, how thread is constructed, and how to handle it, for example. Just opening a skein without making a royal mess seemed to be hit or miss. That’s when I discovered this 24-page pamphlet on Amazon. In addition to the subjects I mentioned, it also gives hints on how to keep track of and organize your threads. This is a beginning level book, but I found it helpful. — Rosemary
