"I'm so impressed with the patterns included in the book. Each one is designed to teach a specific lesson and builds on the lesson from the previous one...Not sure how to hook points, curves, or lettering? Curious how to transfer a design to the foundation cloth? Want to try your hand at creative hooking techniques and proddy? Need to know how to finish your rug after the hooking is done? Kris' photos and descriptions lead you through the entire process."--Karen Larsen"crowsfootfarmdesigns.com" (03/29/2015)
