Craft Wisdom & Know-How
I stumbled upon this book in Barnes & Nobles. I was searching for a general reference book for DIY projects. Something that explains general crafts and their techniques. I found a lot of DIY step by step instruction books for specific projects. But I wanted a book to give me an idea how techniques are working and I will design my own projects around it. I am not a fan copying anyway. I have my own head and ideas I want to fulfill.
So, after browsing through tons of coloring books and Martha Stewart DIY crafts I found this simply designed book. No fancy images, simple explanations, and images on uncoated paper. The price was fair and the amount of information you get in this book is amazing! From beading, clay, woodwork, jewelry design, crochet, knitting, sewing, ... you pretty much can find any instructions for all DIY ideas you have. It's simple explained and a good resource for every crafty person.
