4.0 out of 5 stars
crafts and hobbies, 16 May 2006
The text in this book provides an excellent inspiration for craft. All too often craft books are the 'easy' and 'instant' variety which weaken their case that craft is skill, requires study, patience and provides a wonderful sense of achievement as your own skills and experience develop. This book also gives background history, and a personal look, which should encourage the beginner that their effort is going to be worthwhile. It would have got 5 stars if every motif had included drawings using the international printed pattern systems you see in magazines abroad, instead of the British system of instructions.
