Not exactly what I expected

User Review  - love2craft - Overstock.com

The book was not exactly what I was thinking it would be. It is rather generic. Would probably be helpful for a beginner. It had a few areas that were helpful so I decided to keep it, but I would not have purchased it if I had been able to look through the entire book. Read full review
