This book was written in such an organized way. It showed numbered pictures of finished beaded embroidery designs on the left side of the page, and on the right side it showed how to do those designs that correspond to the numbered designs on the left. It had many illustrations, it showed basic and advanced designs, materials and tools, needles, It showed finished projects. I could go on and on. I highly recommend this book to anyone that wants to try beaded embroidery. It made something that looks complicated, easy.

This is a lovely little book that would be useful for any beader. I would particularly recommend it for beginners, but I think it would be useful at any skill level. Starting her book with the basics of bead embroidery the author then gives us about 150 designs, using many basic stitches which will already be familiar to most readers, such as Lazy Daisy, Cross, Feather, Cretan and Filling stitches.

The illustrations in the book are really outstanding. The author provides very clear photos, in color, of the finished stitches and motifs followed by carefully drawn diagrams of the process of forming these stitches and motifs. She also gives us a cross stitch alphabet incorporating beads and a list of the beads and threads used in the illustrations if you should wish to use her color combinations.

If you ever thought about bead embroidery but were not certain if it was for you this is the book you need.

This book is the best yet that I've bought on Amazon on beading and embroidery (and I've bought a few). The clean style of the layout and the instructional photography is the best. I have been exploring Japanese craft and quilt books lately, and because I learn visually, I am so grateful for these young designers and these types of books. They manage to show the steps via photos versus using a ton of words to explain each step. Yasuko Endo has done an excellent job and many thanks to her and the CRK group. (Interweave, take note. I LOVE that you published this book. More Japanese books should be translated into English for the craft market. Was this originally in Japanese? Some of the translations are a bit awkward in the text in the book, but good for you for making books like this available in English...Maybe you could do Yoko Saito's "Daily Quilt" next! I've ordered the Japanese copy translated into Chinese, since I couldn't find the French copy; I'm hoping it will be as easy to follow as this book is in terms of visual instruction...if not, I'll have to figure it out; I love a challenge!) This book was worth every penny I spent on it. Can't wait to gather together the tools and fabric to get started on my own stitch samples. If you love to embroider and embellish with beads, you will appreciate this book.

I purchased this book to learn all these bead embroidery stitches and found each one leads to a million ideas for projects. If you love beads, precious touches to what you make, and enjoying doing something that can be carried on the go then this book is for you.

These are great designs and have my brain churning to decide where to put them. I am about to make some clothes from a Japanese inspired book of patterns and these will be perfect for finishing them in a memorable way.

Great pictures and "how to" descriptions, sent me running for needles, beads, fabric and threads!
Pictures are well taken and show fantastic detail.
