The book comes with some beautiful projects and very nice stories of people who created them. However if you look for a more project-focused book I would say this might fall a bit short as the instructions might not be detailed enough for beginners. I really enjoyed the stories bit though, as the title says, they're all very meaningful and every project has a background to it.

I thought it would be loaded with ideas. Deco. a plate is the biggest craft. It is boring. I am more into crafts than crafts I got here.

Not exactly what I was looking for. I found two projects, so I will copy them and pass this book onto some of my more crafty friends.

Not very happy with product. I thought it would have more than just one crochet pattern. Would not have bought

I purchased this for the instructions on the doiley rug. I haven't started or finished yet, but the book itself is like anyother crafty book, there's a lot I wouldn't do for my own home, but it's nicely assembed, instructions are good, just don't expect to want to do every craft listed in there!

Ordered this book for one particular project. When it was received (very quick, and I didn't ask for overnight or 2-day ship), I happily found quite a few other craft projects that caught my attention. The book is in perfect condition.
