I am possibly the least "crafty" person in the world. It took me three days to assemble a bbq grill and I've learned the hard way not to shop at Ikea (would it kill the Swedes to assemble the dag hammerskold chaise-lounge for me?). SO, reading a how-to type book that is SO FUNNY and so inclusive of non-crafters (un-crafters?) like me was really refreshing. The projects the author describes are doable and even if they are not, the fun to be had while attempting them is delicious. I am not going to get it together to knit anyone a sweater for Christmas or make a potholder for Channukah but I am definitely going to buy a bunch of these books for folks this holiday season. I really recommend it.

I sadly had to return this book. I just didn't get it- could entirely be me based on the positive reviews, but the book is light on both craft ideas and party ideas. The suggestions weren't my thing either- a nautical knot tying party? Nope.

This book gives lots of great ideas for fun projects and encourages socializing while crafting. In hard economic times it makes sense to make your own fun and this book is a great help. It makes you smile to read it.

Crafternoon is not intended as a manual for experienced craftspeople, rather it is a seriously fun tool for building community through the creative recreational arts. Perfect for the new kid on the block who is looking to get to know the neighbors!

It's so hard to find community these days, so why don't we "craft" it? That's exactly what this charming book teaches us to do. Using skills of older generations to bring our own generation (and even younger) together to chat, support, snack and craft. Having belonged in the past to a quilting club, and I am about the last person in the world that I ever would have expected at a quilting club, I can personally attest to how great these types of group activities can be to create a sense of community. This book is a great gift for a friend who might miss making macrame owls and colorful God's eyes at summer camp and craves the opportunity to re-live those days with like minded friends.

I was so looking forward to getting this book after the other review i read and seeing the author's site. But this book has not nearly enough photos, which one would think would be helpful when dealing with things of the aesthetic nature. Basically only but this book if you are going to have monthly crating parties and you want a formula for that. Except I didn't get the knotting party, the book explains different knot making, but what do you do with the knot? Is that the craft? Tying a knot? Maybe my expectations were way too high after reading this book was "David Sedaris meets MArtha Stewart", cause that would be way off.

Offers good ideas for starting up a craft group for you and friends. Also, author has a sense of humor that makes it entertaining. I would have liked her to offer ideas for using more than one medium for each month.

This is a must for anyone who enjoys crafting. The projects are interesting and accessible and the communal spirit the book promotes is refreshing. But maybe the best thing about this book -- and what distinguishes it from others on the subject -- is that it is such a great read. Madden writes with wit and warmth and the guide will keep you entertained from start to finish. Crafternoon: A Guide to Getting Artsy and Crafty with Your Friends All Year Long
