Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Lincolne's Melbourne, Australia, craft store, Meet Me at Mike's, is a hub for crafty activity, and she here presents a variety of craft projects inspired by the shop and its clientele. A number of different techniques are represented, from crochet to paper work to sewing to embroidery, and most of the projects are simple enough for beginners. The presentation is over-the-top cute, almost to the point of cloying, and the directions aren't always easy to follow, but crafters who enjoy this aesthetic will find the book a pleasing addition to their collections.
Kirkus Reviews

The owner of a popular Australian craft store lends her creative talents to a one-of-a-kind craft book full of variety for novice do-it-yourselfers.

Twenty-six projects—from the whimsical "Yoga pants for happy babies" to the practical "Super-cute tote" to the tasty "Pink lamingtons"—comprise this approachable, cheerful guide. With thoughtfully detailed instructions, Lincolne banishes monotony through her cheerful writing and diverse collection of inspired and unusual crafting projects. Geared to newbies, suitability levels playfully vary from "beginner" to "careful, patient beginner" to "confident beginner" with doable project times that run from 30 minutes to several hours. A front folder holds easy-to-copy patterns and step-by-step guides to the basics of knitting, crocheting and stitching. Artfully crafted illustrations lend a vintage feel and provide creative inspiration for scrapbooking ideas, which should be added as crafty project number 27. If a particular project captures one's imagination, a helpful index is provided at the end of the book listing similar suggestions and further reading. From skirts to brooches, stuffed toys to vintage clutches, there's a craft here for every disposition.

First-time crafters will find a trove of quirky and fun homespun projects that create unique keepsakes.
