Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
An excellent addition to needlework collections.

[C]olorful and cool

School Library Journal
Gr 4-7-An attractive, how-to guide to the basics of knitting, crocheting, embroidery, quilting, and sewing. The introduction presents ideas on how needlework can be used to liven up clothing and create gifts and decor items. The volume begins with helpful suggestions on gathering supplies, measuring, selecting fabric, and stitching. The rest of the book presents detailed, step-by-step directions on basic techniques for projects that range from very simple to intricate. Patterns for decorations include permission for copying for personal or classroom use. Color drawings and photographs are appealing as well as instructive. This book is for an older audience than Ray Gibson's Starting Needlecraft (Usborne, 1994). An excellent addition to needlework collections.-Elizabeth Stumpf, Clearfield Middle School, PA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
