Top Customer Reviews
The Good House Keeping company is old and renowned. Its magazine and Seal of Approval are highly respected. This book is good as far as it goes with all these techniques:
Patchwork & Quilting
It's a large compendium with color photos and diagrams on every page. If you're somewhat acquainted with any skills discussed, you might enjoy this book, especially if you have a natural talent to do a smattering of techniques. Because there are only brief passages on a given technique. For example, under Embroidery, I looked up samplers, a passion of mine: only 2 pages.
The vast variety of techniques might attract you to try something that's outside your comfort zone which can be fun.
