Gr. 3-7. This splashy guide, crammed with photos of fashionably dressed crafters (including two boys), shows how "drawing with yarn" can add a funky personal touch to decor, clothes, and accessories. Nicholas opens with sample stitches on plastic mesh, then introduces more advanced, freestyle techniques; her own watercolor-and-ink diagrams make mastering even the whimsical "lazy daisy" a snap. Skill explanations are followed by a sophisticated-looking project, such as an attractive throw pillow. Patterns for enlarging conclude, but stitchers are also encouraged to design their own motifs. Nicholas' relies a lot on awkward cross-referencing, but that's a small inconvenience when weighed against the potential for fun. Jennifer Mattson

I was really excited when I saw Kid's Embroidery because it fit the bill. Mia is now teaching her friends - a real sewing circle in the 21st century. They are working on Christmas gifts -- and some are finished -- and they are cute!
I am very proud that my daughter is able to share a hobby that I love so well.
