SUMMARY- Several of the techniques, like knitting, crochet and tatting, assume the reader already has a solid grasp of the basics of these crafts. This book covers a whole lot of territory! The tatting chapter covers adding beads to both shuttle and needle tatting. I bought this book for the tatting chapter, but I was just as absorbed by the rest of the chapters and studying the other samples of what could be accomplished in the various disciplines included. I do recommend this book to anyone with a wide interest in beads and fiber arts.
