First of all, I love the design of this book. To be really shallow, it was the main reason I bought it from Amazon... However, it has content as well as style. The projects are varied, from coasters to skirts, cat toys to pullovers. It's definitely one for the beginner, and the American beginner probably, although the author does include the US/British terms - thank goodness.
Recommended for newbies but probably not for those who have gone beyond cushion covers and belts.
