Underground Railroad in Delaware, Maryland, and West Virginia
In a companion volume to his highly regarded Underground Railroad in Pennsylvania (0-8117-1629-5), William J. Switala focuses on the escaped-slave network in the eastern border states of Delaware and Maryland, as well as the region that became West Virginia in 1863. Using fresh and extensive research, Switala fills a glaring void in the historical record of this important topic. Full of vivid anecdotes and lucid reconstructions, this book brings the Underground Railroad to life for the modern reader

I am about to design a craft studio, so I wanted to see what other people had done. I was glad to see in this book that studio spaces could be organized. I was also reminded that you can never have enough bins and labels. Unfortunately this book covers several different crafting spaces. The one on needlework includes knitting and crochet and does not feature a specific artist. So the suggestions for needlework are fairly generic and sometimes even just flat out wrong. The section on design (color and decorations) was both simplistic and endless. I cannot truly recommend this book and yet if you need a motivation to get your crafts in order, it does have some tips and pictures that might inspire you.
