I recently acquired this book as I loved the cover and the colours in the book. This book is confusing, there are many creative ideas for wonderful threadwork and the book could be so much better with well structured projects. I could not follow some of the instructions very well and the editing seemed to be somewhat fragmented. I would recommend this book for experienced fibre and textile artists, but not for sheer beginners as there are no step by step photos. Diagrams replace those and I am not sure that it is to the benefit of demonstrating the incredible skills of Effie. I would suspect that a better editor would have made this a better book. ( )
