Waste of money
on 4 July 2012
I can't see the point in buying this book. I bought it believing that I could make some carpets for my dolls house. When I received the book, I liked several carpets and was eager to start. On closer inspection of the carpet I was going to start with, I couldn't find a list of materials I would need. I contacted the author and was told that there is no list of materials for any of the carpets in the book, and that the best thing I could do would be to buy a carpet kit which would have all the materials needed with it. If you want to make any of the carpets in the book, then you have to guess how much thread you will need, but the author does advise that you buy all the thread at the same time to make sure you will get the same dye numbers if you need to buy more than one skein of the same colour. How are you supposed to do that if there is no list of amounts of thread needed.
Verdict: A complete waste of money and the kits are very expensive.
