5.0 out of 5 stars This is a must have book for all crafters., 24 Mar 2001
This review is from: Glorious Needlepoint (Paperback)
If you have never picked up a needle and applied coloured thread to fabric, then you will after reading this book. Kaffe's enthusiasm and designs lead the unwary on a path of constant design possibilites and maybe down the path to needlepoint addiction. Kaffe has taken the simple shell, played around with size, design and texture and from that designed a lamp shade. There are also roosters, ducks, broken pieces of pottery and many more wonderful everyday items that have been used. Kaffe's use of the ordinary and turning it in to the extraordinary by using simple stitching and basic shapes is a great gift, but a gift that any one can work on. The colours in the book are bright and vibrant and they really make you want to start working on a project just so that you can see if yours would look like that. The us of text and explanations of how and why throughout the book are also great. This is not so much a "you must do" book, but an "if I can do it,so can you" book. I think the book is a great reference item and I will happily spend time just leafing through my copy and picking up ideas for other designs that I am doing. In the back of the book there are helpful tips on fabrics, yarns etc., so even a beginner should be able to do the basics in next to no time. Steve Lovi's photography is clear and shows every piece as well as any photograph is able.
