Archive.org features a nice selection of vintage embroidery books, which you can enjoy reading online without wasting a single penny. These books are just as worthy and valuable as modern ones, in terms of providing a lot of helpful tips and pieces of advice, but the biggest advantage is, probably, their focus on the history of embroidery. Apart from that, many of the books feature instructions and tutorials on embroidery stitches, and you might even be surprised with some of the names. For example, some refer to stem stitch as “crewel stitch”.
