Twist of the Wrist Vol. II: The Basics of High Per&hellip by Keith Code
4.0 out of 5 stars A must read., April 4 2003

I had hoped the Ann Benson books would help but I find she is a second rate author and although she may be able to teach in person, these books are terrible for a beginner: they contain patterns but do not teach, instructions for projects are out of order, materials required are not sufficiently explained, techniques are not explained. They claim to be written for beginners {in both titles, for crying out… Read more
