This is a pretty unique craft book instead of just giving you projects and techniques Perri shares her knowledge (and that of many industry leaders) on all things craft related.

Perri covers 15 different techniques in the book, including embroidery, screen printing, millinery, embellishment, tailoring and appliqué. Each chapter starts with a how to guide, followed by 2 pages of useful tips and advice from relevant experts, advice on solving common problems and then leads into a project. Perri aims to inspire you to explore your own creativity rather than just follow projects so after each project there is a page of ideas and tips on how to take the technique further.T-shirt dress project from Material World

In between each technique chapter there are a few pages giving advice on all different things craft related, including going to craft groups, where to find good advice on the internet and turning your crafts into a business. The experts featured include Amy Butler, Rob Ryan, Kaffe Fassett and some of our customers including The Make Lounge and Ruth Singer.

A great guide to the world of crafting as well as giving you several technique guides and projects.

Having got a copy from Amazon [pretty quick too] I poured over the pages and was so pleased to not find a tea cosy project anywhere.
This is a book that you can read as well as learn from and will sit on the coffee table as well as the craft shelf.
Thinks that she may become the Jamie Oliver of the craft world soon if not already taken that mantle.
Love the idea for the shoes but might try a more blokey version - its not just a girlie book guys!!!!!

A delightful book which reminded me of crafts I learned years ago and did really badly. Perri's guide is written in warm accessible language with clear illustrations. She, and her guest contributors, have made me my fingers itch to get started again AND given the information I need to enjoy the results!

This book is lovely to dip into with lots of insider tips for each craft and a how-to section for many different crafts. Great for beginners to a craft as well as interesting as it covers a lot of different crafts so there should be something in there that you have not tried. It only gives a fairly overview of each craft but has a project to complete for each one.

This book gives loads of ideas, tips and advice on using a wide variety of materials in craft and design work. Great reference book. Helps you to form and complete your own ideas. Gives good basic skills to help with your own development.
It is written in easy to read style with excellent photos and diagrams.

Difficult to read and follow on the Kindle. I'm sorry I bought this version instead of the proper book. Definitely a mistake. Books have the added advantage of being in colour as well.

I have quite a few craft books and I have to say that this is the worst one by far. There isn't anything in it that I'm really bothered about making unlike the other craft books that I own. I think that the book is quite pretentious. There is also space wasted where the contributors give their 'knowledge'. I'd much rather see those pages used for more (and better) craft ideas. Don't waste your money on this turkey!
