Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

Gr 4-8

A lively combo of color illustrations and photos will appeal to girls looking for a cool introductory book on embroidery. From the short, encouraging introduction to the brief but adequate descriptions of tools required and discussion of choosing colors, young crafters will be equipped to embark on an exciting and challenging hobby. Much thought and planning went into the book's design and arrangement. Basic stitches to be mastered are illustrated and explained clearly. Adult assistance will most likely be required as there are many skills to learn and master-measuring, sewing, pinning, cutting, and transferring patterns. Each project has a color photo, step-by-step full-color instructions, and many helpful tips. The assortment of projects will encourage girls to pursue this craft. Back matter contains 48 templates and instructions for using a window to transfer designs, basting, and using carbon paper. This welcome addition will supplement Judy Ann Sadler's Embroidery (Kids Can, 2004).-Augusta R. Malvagno, Queens Borough Public Library, NY
