SUMMARY- This is one of those pain-in-patootie craft books where the sample photo(which is often so cluttered with "atmosphere" that the projects are hard to study), the instructions, and the designer's names are in three separate, inconvenient locations. Despite this, there are some lovely patterns in all their Special Interest Publications.
