There is always one more craft I want to try and Punch Needle is no exception. I had yet to find a book that provided good instructions AND had graphics large enough that I could see them well enough to understand. GETTING STARTED IN PUNCH NEEDLE does both. The first 14 pages explains what punch needle is, gives a bit of its history and then talks about Album quilts such as the Baltimore. Page 16-25 tells you how to do punch needle and has those large graphics for which I was looking. Pages 26 ¿ 31 contain the instructions for making the quilt. Pages 32 ¿ 91 have all the patterns ¿ a color photo of what the punch needle design will look like, instructions for creating that pattern and the template to use. A Materials list and a color key with DMC/Anchor changes is also found here. The final five pages are about all the authors of this well put together book and a one page glossary of terms, something that is always good when you are beginning a craft. Not a bad idea for reviewing a craft that you haven¿t done in a long time either! Once you have completed the Baltimore Album Quilt, use the patterns over again to make wall hangings, to decorate a pillow, jacket or chair back. Use the templates for Red Work patterns or if you are a painter, use them for your paint projects. If you put your thinking cap on, you will find lots of uses for these patterns.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
