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!

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.

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.

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.

creative, modern projects in this book, however, most products you will not have even if you think you have a pretty well stocked art supply room. they do provide helpful list of items that are needed for each project.

Love the ideas and the directions, Some of the items I have seen before, but have forgotten about. It is refreshing to follow the directions and know how to have your work space prepared and all the supplies together before beginning the projects.
