“Using mostly inexpensive materials and recyclables, this colorful and well-formatted craft book introduces the basic skills of sewing, embroidery, felting, knitting, crocheting, and weaving in a peppy conversational style. Although these techniques have been around for ages, Blum and Newman utilize them in fresh ways. Projects progress from easy to difficult; examples include a beanbag hand warmer, a cord-slung backpack, and a phone sweater. Excellent close-up photos of kids and tweens, girls and boys, augment the well-written directions... VERDICT A worthy choice for libraries looking to update their crafting materials for young people. This is also a good book for older teens in need of a simplified approach.” — School Library Journal
“Accessible skill-building over a range of needle-crafts — and the delight with which the authors encourage readers to upcycle, improvise, and break the rules is utterly contagious.” — Margaret Bloom, author of Making Peg Dolls and More

Stitch Camp: 18 Crafty Projects for Kids & Tweens by Nicole Blum and Catherine Newman
This book tackles the most popular fiber arts: sewing, knitting, crochet, felting, embroidering, and weaving. In the last few years, I have noticed how popular felting and weaving have become and they are new additions to the others which have long been popular hobbies. It feels like all of these hobbies have been going through a revival and much of that is due to fun projects like these in this book!
In my middle daughter's words, "The directions are easy to follow. The crafts are really cute and fun to make! I can't wait to learn so much more from this book!"
When this book arrived at our home, I didn't even get to look at it for days on end. My middle daughter absconded with it to her room and wouldn't let it go! She started by making the bean bags and had already made ten of them within a few days. She enjoyed them, and so did everyone she gave them to.
Each section begins with directions about the craft and then follows with project directions. After the project, more directions are included--followed by a project that needs those skills. This pattern is repeated throughout the book, so that the child builds skills while doing projects along the way. As a mom, I love that the materials for the projects aren't expensive. I was impressed that there was even a note for left-handed crafters--suggesting that they look at the illustrations in the mirror and think about doing them backwards! This was a thoughtful inclusion. I think this Christmas I'm going to use several of these projects for my girls to make for others as gifts. The Art Pillow is one that I know will be loved and easy to mail!
A week after the book's arrival, a good friend of mine was visiting (who Sami wanted to share the book with) who gave this book a raving review as well. She looked through it and was thoroughly impressed by the directions and crafts. She wished for the book herself as an adult even though she already knows how to do each of the types of crafts included in this book.
This book is one that I highly recommend if you have a child who loves to craft! It's a treasure!
Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this book for review from Storey Books, but that these opinions are my own.
