SUMMARY- The editor really swung for the fences with this collection. There's nothing in here that I would call simple for a beginner, and the print is tiny tiny tiny. The tatting section is modest in size, but has some really lovely work. I've taken the time to enter the designer's names - mostly we were given only their initials. The crochet, knitting, and tatting patterns are there, but the patterns for the other sections are only described - and with no ordering information to get the full patterns. So, did this book come with some other catalog? I don't know. You get a black-and-white photo of each sample article, to show you how the pattern should turn out. This came out on the leading edge of a renaissance for the needlearts that rolled for about two decades, when a ton of designers came to prominence and fought for their audiences' egg money.
