Library Journal Review

Specialized handbooks are a great boon to Internet users. In typical computer manual format, this book guides crafters, whether they're beginners or experienced Internet users, through the complexities of e-mail, web browsers, researching online, buying and selling, etc. There are many sample screens of craft-related U.S. and Canadian web sites along with tips and cautions for users. Although much of the information can be found in other sources, this gathering of craft-related topics by Canadian crafter Crabe makes the Internet seem like familiar territory for crafters who must spend much of their time away from the computer. Recommended for general crafts or computer collections. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
