This is it, the one stop shop for all those needlecrafts you may want to do now or in the future. Bursting with ideas and creativity - I loved this book the minute I was given it for Mother's Day.

I consult it when I want to work out how to do a stitch or learn something knew. It's a great family heirloom to be - something to pass down and share the joy that comes from making things by yourself for others.
If you are a person who loves crafts or want to learn a new skill look for this needlecraft book from DK publishing. It has all the information we will ever need to know about knitting, crocheting, quilting, embroidery, needlepoint, patchwork and appliqué.
Every section has detailed information about materials and tools, all the techniques from basic to advance and the designs/ patterns. I like the organization of this book. The colour coded for sections make it easy to follow.

I was fortunate I got my copy well reduced in the sale , but is worth the full price.
This book is filled with wonderful things to learn and make. It has a great amount of examples of each different type of needlecraft including knitting, crochet, embroidery, quilting, patchwork and applique. Its a wealth of information and I would definately recommend it to those who are just starting out and those who want to expand their knowledge base on the subject.
