I purchased the pdf(ebook) version of this book directly from Pam's website, after taking a class on how to make board-mounted valences from one of Pam's certified instructors. Both versions include patterns for valences and for an attractive curved placemat. The patterns are included on the CD that accompanies the book---a great value, since you won't need to any buy patterns seperately. (In the ebook version, you print out patterns directly from the pdf.) The patterns are printed out and must be pieced together with tape, and then cut out. This is a bit time-consuming if you want to print & piece all of them (12 valences + placemat printing uses over 100 sheets of paper). (Pam also sells plastic templates of the patterns on her website---my instructor had a set of those because she teaches the classes.) Also, home-dec machine embroidery designs are included on the CD.

The theme of the book is 12 --- valence patterns, embroidery designs, recipes. I'm not much of a cook and so I don't have any comment about the recipes. The illustrations and organization of the book is very helpful. The focus of the book is on making board-mounted valences --- the book illustrates the measuring, sewing, and mounting techniques. There is a list of supplies needed (from the hardware store), and the author takes the reader through the process of preparing the board, how to mount it above the window with metal L brackets, and illustrating sewing techniques such as making flat piping. There is a lot of info in this book in addition to the making of valences; there are illustrated instructions on making decorator pillows and installing zippers in a pillow, and how to create a fabric-covered ottoman from a large bucket.

I'm really enjoying this book---the valences are shown in color and it's very helpful to see where each pattern piece is used. I think the photos are fun to look at for decorating ideas. If you need to make valences, I'd recommend this book.

I agree with the two previous reviews and want to add that the book is very well made.
It has a spiral inside binding so it will lay flat while in use. Heavy high gloss pages with
large easy to read print, great for older eyes and easy to read from a distance when working
on a project. This book is a great staple for any home sewer/crafter, not a read once and pass-on,
a Keeper! The projects are timeless, all you have to do is change the fabric to suit your taste.
