The basics and a bit more are at your fingertips in these handy guides--every question you're likely to have is answered clearly and completely. Each little volume contains more than 250 full-color illustrations combined with authoritative text, making these new titles great additions to any home library.
Core information on a variety of subjects is reduced to the 101 most crucial facts you must know. The pocket-size paperback format makes it ideal for quick reference. Hundreds of crisp, full-color photographs are combined with thoroughly researched text in these handy books.
This book is good for people who are new to decorating and like fabric craft ideas for the home. It actually contains more information than I expected from the description (it is only 72 pages). The pictures are generally good and helpful. One thing I must say though is that on the pictures illustrating machine sewing the fabric and thread are ofthen similar color and it is very hard if not impossible to figure out where the seams are. Other than that, I think it has enough information to get you started. The price is right too.
However, if you know the basics and are interested in more involved and elaborate projects you might want to choose a title that goes into more detail.
