This book is one of the first beading books I have purchsed, and I am very glad I did so. The patterns an dinstructions are exceptionaly easy to follow for someone who has some knowledge of brick or Cheyenne stitching, but for someone who has never attempted it, there are a few places that may cause them trouble. Either way, I do recommend this book, and think it will make an excellent addition to anyone's beading book collection!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
