Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Praise for Tapestry Bead Crochet: Projects & Techniques:
 
“This new book is a timeless classic. Ann Benson is a master of her craft and a true inspiration.” - Sherry Serafini

 
“Ann Benson has gathered a wealth of information about tapestry crochet. She supplies all you need to know about the materials, such as seed beads, crochet cotton, hooks, and needles. Basic techniques are covered, and there are many projects to choose from, including an MP3 player holder, a smashing pill-box hat, a variety of bags, and more, all delightfully covered in seed beads. Once you get the hang of following Ann's patterns, you can fill in the blank charts at the back of the book to express your own creativity. As a special bonus, a 40-minute DVD accompanies the book, bringing the pages to life!” - Bead & Button

 
“Whether you are a beader who wants to learn to crochet or a crocheter who would like to learn to incorporate beads into your work, this book is for you. If you have never beaded or crocheted, one look through Tapestry Bead Crochet and you will be hooked. Ann explains everything. This book is a perfect gift for someone who wants to expand her or his repertoire.” - Hartford Examiner
 
"18 absolutely stunning projects will pull you in from the moment you pick up this book. The projects employ only three crochet stitches, which are explained and illustrated in the beginning pages. Wonderful instructions, visual aids that help even a newbie keep up, and lots of tips make this book a winner." - Bead Unique

"Tapestry Bead Crochet by Ann Benson should be in your collection if you love ornate, beaded projects that have a vintage flair like (her) peacock bag and leopard-print pillbox. Using three crochet stitches, beads, and instruction from Ann on the included DVD, you can learn to make 18 projects included in the book." - Craft Gossip

Library Journal
Benson (Beadpoint: Beautiful Bead Stitching on Canvas) is well known among beaders for her beautiful designs. These advanced projects for beaded bags and other accessories resemble traditional needlepoint and are charted the same way. The included DVD offers additional information and video demonstrations of the author working the crochet techniques. Like Benson's other books, this will be in demand by bead enthusiasts.
