Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In this encyclopedic overview of knitting, crochet, needlepoint, embroidery, and quilting, Gordon (The Complete Book of Quilting), Sally Harding (Quick Crochet Huge Hooks), and freelance editor Ellie Vance focus on tools, tips, and techniques for each craft and include simple projects. The knitting, crochet, and needlework sections also include stitch dictionaries with full-color swatches of each pattern, and the quilting section includes a block gallery. This may not be a comprehensive resource for any of the crafts included, but there's enough information to launch beginners and serve as a reference for more experienced fiber artists. A useful addition.
