Each chapter is set up like an interview with a different crafter. The interview includes a photograph and how the author knows them or their work. The author goes through a variety of questions that really let you understand who the crafter or designer is and how they came to be who they are. There are also beautiful color photographs of pieces that they've created and a photograph of their craft room along with information about their favorite craft items, etc. You'll also have a link to go to in order to see more of what each person creates.
My favorite part of this book is that scattered throughout the interviews with famous crafters and designers are *Words to Craft By* which are little introductions to a variety of every day crafters and their blogs. You'll learn about who they are, their favorite crafts, where they live and what their blog link is so you can go connect with them and learn more.
I have had so much fun with this book. It's the perfect way to get inspiration or to spend a couple hours on a rainy afternoon. The way the interviews are written really lets you get to know the crafters. Including the links to sites and blogs means that I can connect with the people I feel can offer me more inspiration. Listing their favorite crafts means that I can search out people who enjoy the same types of crafts that I do. I was pleasantly surprised to see that there are a variety of male crafters included in the book as well. This is a great way to spend the afternoon!
