I am just learning Tunisian Crochet and I found this book to be a valuable resource. The description of stitches and general instructions in the book are very clear. The photo step-by-step descriptions are very clear. I can't wait to make the swirls baby afghan for my new granddaughter. I love all of the patterns and can see that I am going to be wearing a lot of shawls in the near future.

I'm also thinking of making scarfs from some of the stitch patterns. An easy way to learn the stitches and make Christmas presents.

I'm in love with the DVD. It makes everything so much clearer. Reading is great, but moving pictures of any technique are wonderful. I found the video to be very professional and filmed in a manner that allows the viewer to get a clear picture of each of the stitches and stitch patterns. The videos are precise and slow enough for the viewer to see exactly how the stitch is made.

As an aside, I'm in love with the photography in this book. I find it to be tasteful, opulent and gorgeous. It makes the book a pleasure to view and read.

This is a small project book with 10 items to crochet. The book is clear and easy to follow. The DVD has hesitation glitches and also some focus issues that are distracting. The envelope that contains the DVD is near the middle of the book, making browing through the book difficult...it would have been nice if there would have been a DVD pocket on the front or read page. All the items are made of light worsted or worsted weight yarn...many items would have been prettier made in a lighter weight yarn, giving a more lacy effect. I highly recommend a tunisian crochet hook with a flexible cord in place of the more old fashioned straight, solid hook.

If you already know how to do Tunisian Simple Stitch and want to move your skills on and up then this is for you. And if you don't already know how to do Tunisian SS - why, this is also for you: you will not fail to discover how! This lovely collection of patterns together with the clearest of DVD instructions is a must for the crochet library.

I will highly recommend this book. There is nothing to waste. The first half of the book is a course in Tunisian crochet and the other half is about the projects. The DVD is a wonderful tool which will help the people that need a visual tool. All projects are beautiful and fashionable. Also, I will like to advise new buyers to be aware that all projects are intermediate level, meaning that this book is not for crochet beginners. I would also like to add that Kim Guzman, the author has created stunning pieces to please all crowds.

Kim Guzman's book is fabulous. Even as a fairly new crocheter I can follow this book and love the instructional photos. The DVD is so great and I know I will watch it a million times.
I highly advise you all to buy this book so that you can have it on hand whenever you are going to work a project.
Beautiful patterns.

This book has good information on the different kinds of stitches and the CD that comes with it is really good taking you step by step through the stitches and then through the patterns in the book. I am not any expert on crochet in general but I really enjoy tunisian crochet after taking one class on the simple stitches and being able to make a small purse quickly and this book will enable me to make more difficult projects.

I enjoyed learning Tunisian Lace. The instruction were clear and easy to follow. Great colorful pictures. It was hard for me to sew and hold book open so I carefully tore out the page and put them in plastic sleeves inside of a notebook so I can flip the pages book and forth.
