I have my City and Guilds level 3 in embroidery and level 1 in Gold work embroidery, and some of these projects would need a good knowledge in stitching and crafts in general.
The reason I gave this book 3 stars, as the author assumes you have a sewing machine, you have a puncturing tool set, use to using a scalpel with cutting mat and access to a vast array of materials (embellishments, fabrics, ribbons, embroidery thread, tapestry threads, the odd spot of spare wall paper, lambs skin ( to make children's booties), buy a throw to embroider etc.)
There is a crystallised ginger project which I really fancied making for a loved one, but at the bottom of the page it states you need to make this at least 3 months in advance, not many people start buying Christmas project books 3 months before Christmas to start their projects!!!!! I will have to mark in next years calendar to do this one!
A few of these projects are easy and simple but most are complexed. Most of these projects will be expensive to make, as crafting can be a very expensive hobby.
I do love the very wide range of project ideas, and they do look lots of fun to make.Read more ›
I particularly liked the chutney recipe, stocking and crystallised ginger. There are so many ideas and it is not over-complicated like some craft books. You also don't need to buy a huge amount of equipment for things, which is great for making things on a short time scale.

This book contained lots of ideas some easier than others. I deducted a star because some ideas were repeated from other books and were not new and original. Read morePublished on 8 Jan. 2014 by J. Webb
A beautifully printed craft book, lots of lovely ideas and inspiration, and a fab Scandi them running throughout. I would recommend for any crafter to have this on their shelf.Published on 16 Dec. 2013 by LH
Sorry, but I really did not feel inspired by this book at all. Although the front picture on here looked fine the reality was a very lack lustre one. Read morePublished on 3 Nov. 2013 by shirley cates
I got this book as a replacement for another book I ordered in error. There are some interesting ideas in there - all of them doable and not requiring loads of equipment.Published on 6 Oct. 2013 by Abel
