Summary

Summary

"Twenty-six charted projects fill this sumptuous book of canvas beadwork. Benson provides great introductory material....Projects are mostly classic, inspired by Persian rugs, landscape or still-life scenes....Challenging projects for pillows, purses, and wall hangings are real standouts." -- Bead & Button.

Library Journal Review

These specialized books, written by two well-known beadwork designers and authors, are welcome additions to a popular craft. Benson's book has projects for beading on canvas, using design charts and stitches similar to needlepoint. Similar but more advanced than those in her earlier Beading for the First Time, the projects include step-by-step instructions for pillows, purses, and small accessories. Nehring (The Big Book of Tassels) uses beads as trim or design embellishments on fabric. This is a book of techniques, such as making fringes or stitching beads to fabric, and includes the use of sequins, rhinestones, and shisha mirrors. The text emphasizes materials and methods, and no projects are included. Both books are good additions to public library craft collections. (c) Copyright 2010.
