Adult/High School–This craft book is a model of helpful organization–clear directions supplemented by large and clarifying photographs, useful explanations of both techniques and supplies, and attractive projects. Providing instruction on how to sew patchwork, quilt, and embroider using hand techniques and sewing machines, the chapters are brief and focused on specific aspects of the work: preparing fabric, using such tools as scissors and needles, selecting and using batting, creating or copying paper patterns and templates, and making additional designs with embroidered stitches, ribbons and lace, and beadwork. A true beginner could move beyond inspiration to attempting a real project–a potholder is the smallest one detailed–while those teens who have confidence in their sewing will be inspired to follow the directions for making handbags, photo-album covers, and maybe even a full-size quilt. Crafty teens, and those wondering if they might be able to turn their hands to creating something substantial, will be well served by this volume.–Francisca Goldsmith, Berkeley Public Library, CA
