Here are the stitches I have learned for this module, from top to bottom: smyrna, brick, darning, Algerian eye and oblong with backstitch, cross, French, knotted, gobelin (up 2 over 2) gobelin droite, Van Dyke.

I gave up on the Algerian eye across the row, as I did not like the effect.

The threads used in this sample are, from left to right: knitting tape (Como Italian Style by Wendy), tapestry wool (Anchor), Zwicky silk (Flora), 1/8th" double faced satin ribbon (Offray), nylon drapery cord, DMC cotton floss, mohair content yarn, pearl cotton #5 (Anchor), rayon floss (DMC), metallic cord, eyelash yarn, pearl cotton #8 (DMC).

Some rows were not completed in the selected threads for one of two reasons: either there was not enough thread, or I did not like the effect.
