I have tons of crafts books, I love looking up ideas online, but I have never seen a book like this. Craft books have had to step things up because of pinterest and other digital means of DIY sources- this book has faced that challenge and proves the superiority of pages over a screen. Every page is beautiful and exciting to leaf through- I will honestly try most of these ideas. I have not been this inspired in a long time!! Thank you, Lena Corwin!

This is an amazing craft book! I have followed most of these designers for years and am so inspired by their aesthetic and taste. The projects here are lovely, interesting and inspiring. Some of the projects chosen by the different designers surprised me -such a variety...all beautiful. I looked forward to receiving my preorder of this book and was not the least bit disappointed. I am planning to keep busy all winter with these projects- sewing, knitting, soap making, printing, jewelry making, dying, weaving and crocheting. There are lots of detailed instructions and pictures showing detailed progress. I think you will be inspired to try something new!

This is, simply put, a book of beginner projects for a wide variety of craft types. It is a really great way for a person who likes working with their hands to branch out and try some new crafts; who knows, maybe you'll really like soap making (or weaving, or dyeing, or jewelry making, or rug making, or print making, etc.) Sometimes the first project you make in a new craft is disappointing, but these projects are clearly-written and are all modern useful items.

However, if you aren't looking to try a totally new craft and are already very accomplished in most of the book's crafts, you may find this book redundant..

Most of the projects are simple - almost too simple. Many of them I had seen before on tv or in magazines. But I will say there were a few that I will use - maybe 3-5. The rest of the projects, well I will probably give the book away after a while..

Good quality printing and photos.

I'd recommend this book to any crafter or creative soul of any level of experience. It has a great range of simple, to more complex and involved projects. I'm currently learning how to embroider from this book and it's well-planned and clear instructions is making it surprisingly very easy.

Delightfully depicted. Brought fresh inspiration. I gave it as gifts to my family members to enhance their creative bent, and they are enjoying the book greatly.

Judging by my public library this book is in high demand as there is a huge waiting list for it. I was expecting contents like its cover, which suggest someone already knee deep in the fiber arts. I was disappointed because all of the projects were not for someone who has already been doing fiber art for some time. I think if one had children these might be good projects to teach them and gain their interest in the fiber arts. One also needs to be a bit on the homespun side as these resulting objects could never be considered contemporary fiber art. There were some nice pieces, especially an origami fiber project. The author also uses loads of pictures which is a must in this kind of book. This is one book where the user really needs to look at the pictures inside of it before purchasing. Although this book is not worth four stars to me, I can see where it might be worth that or more for its rightful audience.

What a fun book!! This book is great for those wishing to expand their "craftiness". It is clearly a book designed to "get your feet wet" into many different techniques. Of course, there are projects I wouldn't do, such as knitting socks or sewing a child's shirt, but there are plenty of others I found fascinating enough to try. The book is very well rounded with lots of crafts represented. Most of the projects are beginner friendly and give you enough information to expand and create your own designs. Some require several tools and materials that may be hard to find in rural areas (like mine!) but there are enough simple projects to work on until you can find or order materials for the rest!!
