Book review: Tapestry Bead Crochet

Tapestry Bead Crochet: Projects & Techniques

I've never found bead crochet to be particularly intimidating, but that's probably since learning to crochet was one of the first fiber arts I tackled as a child.  However, when I saw the cover of Ann Benson's new book, Tapestry Bead Crochet, I thought to myself, "Yeah right...like I could ever do that!"

Well, now that I've read through it, I think I probably could!  Ann makes it look easy, and if clear photos and illustrations aren't enough, she includes a bonus dvd to walk you through the techniques.  No matter how complicated the bead pattern looks, Tapestry Bead Crochet only uses three crochet stitches: chain, slip, and single crochet.  Come on!  We can all do that :-)

This book is another beautiful Lark publication, so you know that the quality will be high.  If you've been thinking about learning a new technique, this might be just the book for you!
