Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Mall shops and boutiques are full of clothing and accessories embellished with beads and sequins. Instead of paying fancy prices for imports, needleworkers can take part in the trend by adding decorations to purchased or handmade items. Gourley and Talbott (Art of Seed Beading) cover basic beading stitches with step-by-step projects for easily worked up beaded edgings and pictorial motifs. The results are tasteful and stylish. Levy, a former figure skater and designer of skating costumes, takes a more theatrical approach, combining beads and sequins for flashier effect. In addition to detailed instructions for application, he supplies full-size design templates for copying. Both books are quite trendy and should be welcome in public libraries.
