5.0 out of 5 stars A winner all round! 3 May 2008
So I liked the cover, and at a very reasonable price I thought 'why not'.

Arrived a few days later, and I was amazed...clear instructions for every single project, with details of stitch used and excellent diagrams, would I am sure please a beginner as much as a more proficient crafter.

I immediately put one of the projects to good use and it worked up pretty quick!

The designs are varied and modern, and the techniques used allow you to then go on and design your own...very good all round!

5.0 out of 5 stars deceptively simple 21 Feb 2009
This is a beautiful book full of ideas that will inspire both the new emroiderer and the old hand. The pieces look complicated but are deceptively simple and the instructions are easy to understand.

Clear photographs and simple diagrams make this a book I will refer to quite a bit in the coming months.

If you are buying for a crafter, no matter how experienced they are, they will love to have this on their coffee table and will no doubt be caught flicking through it quite a bit.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very detailed some nice ideas. 3 Sep 2012
By Catkin
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you really want to try lots of embroidery techniques and have no idea how, this would be a great book for you.

The cover inspired me and so I brought the book thinking it'd be full of lots of lovely ideas and projects as I really like books with lots of interesting pictures. The cover project is probably the nicest to look at, the others are a bit boring. Although I really like the cross stitch ideas...quite on trend even now!

The first 3rd of the book is pictures of items you can make and the rest is very detail diagrams, techniques and tool and materiel lists. I'll defiantly keep this book, if I ever really decide to get into embroidery properly it'll be a great reference.

5.0 out of 5 stars very pretty and informative book 28 Nov 2011
Gift for my sister who has just taken up embroidery. Lovely book to browse through for me and hope my sister will find it helpful and enjoyable. Lots of diagrams and guidance and very inspirational - might get one for myself also and learn embroidery too!
