Mostly a book for intermediate or experienced artists, what it lacks in step-by-step descriptions it more than makes up for with excellent images for inspiration and inspired variations on classics.

Lots of pictures and fun to look through, but not nearly as good as Shereen LaPlantz's other book Cover to Cover, which is a favorite of mine. If you're already knowledgeable, and a fan of LaPlantz's, you might want to ad this to your library, but I wouldn't start here.
Kind of disappointing.

the author fell ill when making this book, so it was completed by her assistant. and while i am sympathetic to the circumstances, it doesn't yield a very good book. the project probably should've been shelved. pun intended.

Some good ideas for double-needle simple coptic stitch, slip and slide (or highway) books and a sewing cradle.
