    Impressed!

    The illustrative photography and artwork are exceptionally clear and easy to follow. The text is explicit, yet homey and understandable, such as a mom would teach her daughters - lovingly and simply yet not egotistical. I was able to get a durable hardback edition and this has been one of the best purchases for my stitching library!
