Title: The Big Book of Small Needlework Gifts
Author: Annette Feldman
Publication Date: HC:1980

Page Count: 159

PATTERN RATING:Star Rating Patterns are not full-sized, but they are gridded to help the crafter. There aren't a lot of markings. There is a nice variety, but the patterns do not date well.

INSTRUCTION RATING:Star Rating Instructions are not broken down, and there is very little illustration to go with them. It looks like she sacrificed clear instructions in order to cram in as many projects as possible.

SUMMARY- Better be nostalgic for the 70's if you pursue a copy of this book.
