I have been meaning to do a couple of new book reviews lately! Here is the latest one sent to me by Lark Books: Tapestry Bead Crochet: Projects & Techniques by Ann Benson.
This book is very interesting to me because I love anything that is bead crochet, but never had the chance to learn how to crochet. I always tell myself I want to take a class (I still hope to at some point), but I don’t know when I will have time to do it! I believe this is when a great book can be useful!
Tapestry Bead Crochet provides detailed lists of materials & tools you’ll need to begin basic bead crochet, as well as basic stitches, techniques, and patterns. The photos & diagrams are easy to understand, but if that isn’t enough, there is also an instructional DVD included which helps to put some of it to better visualization.
Overall, this is a very inspiring book. If you’re thinking about taking a bead crochet class, I recommend reading this book beforehand. I’m hoping to someday create the Castle Tapestry Bag pictured above. So many beads, so little time! 😮
