2.0 out of 5 stars Boring Dec 26 2010
By Kathleen - Published on Amazon.com
This might be an ok book for your first try at Swedish Weaving or Huck Embroidry, but it gets awfully boring after that. The beginner patterns are dull and their advanced patterns aren't much more interesting.

A better choice for a first book might be ASN's Monk's Cloth Diamond Afghans, which offers a choice of traditional designs and somewhat clearer how-to instructions. It doesn't pretend to be more than it is.

A much better choice for a second book would be "Huck Adventures" by Michiko Kuge, which has much more interesting designs, better illustrations, and very easy to follow charts. The excellent photographs show how far from boring a rather limited technique can be! Another good choice for a second book would be "Plain and Fancy Huck Embroidery" by Bonnie Datta. This is a slim booklet but has more interesting and original material in it than all four of the Tams/Duffin books. The graphs are also very easy to follow.
