Excuse us if we boast just a little: the list of designers who have contributed to this fabulous book of contemporary embroidery projects reads like a roll call of Homespun alumni. We're talking: Lynette Anderson, Rosalie Quinlan, Leanne Beasley, Aneela Hoey, Yoko Saito, Robyn Kingsley, Tracy Souza, Natalie Lymer, Charlotte Lyons and Anne Sutton. All these wonderful stitchers have contributed projects to Homespun over the years - and now, they and other who work in a similar style have had new projects published in one book. So, if you're a fan of Homespun, it follows that you're virtually guaranteed to love this collection. Each project features simple but sweet hand embroidery that embellishes items such as a bag, quilt, cushion, wallhanging, sewing accessories, placemat or doll. All the embroidery designs are provided at full size, and the instructions for constructing the finished item are clear and well illustrated. What are you waiting for?
(Australian Homespun Magazine, September 2013)
Japanese fabric company Lecien began manufacturing COSMO embroidery floss in 1950. Since then, its collection of incredible floss has grown to 443 colors and has snagged the devotion of many designing fans.
And that what this book is about - projects made with COSMO by some of our industry's top designers.
Let's do some name-dropping here: Aneela Hoey, Anne Sutton, Kaari Meng, Yoko Saito and Alyssa Thomas are just a few of the COSMO lovers who have projects in this great book. Whatever your style or timeframe, you'll find something delightful to stitch up and fondle. (Generation Q Magazine, September/October 2013)

Zakka has other books, as good as this.
I like handcrafts and always buy books at Amazon, but I ONLY buy if I can see it previously, with the facility of "Look inside".
I think I have about 30 books like this, which were bought with the same way: first I see, after I buy.
And all of them come to me faster than it's supposed to arrive, and very well packed.
I'm happy to have the book and will definitely make a few of the projects but with all the hoopla concerning zakka on the internet I was hoping that all of the projects would have that visual appeal I see on Pinterest.
Frankly, the projects on the whole were very disappointing. Mostly re-hashed old projects that have been done elsewhere.
There are much more exciting projects being given away for free if you look on the internet.
There are also better Zakka projects in other Zakka books.
If this is what the well-known names of the sewing industry can produce- it's a sad day for the sewing industry.
Save your money. Buy something else.

The projects are boring. Nothing new. Buy another book.
