I loved the template pages and the designs are just stunning. Small and pretty, using applique and embroidery, the simple art of sewing is showcased and beautifully presented in this amazing book.
This is a book that would make a wonderful gift, it is filled with a range of designs that can be used as they are or as a collage of thread and colourful fabric. I just love it.-- Tracy Shephard * Postcard Reviews *
