Her instructions and illustrations are beyond compare and include clear construction and assembly of all projects as well as embroidery and beading stitches, tassels, beaded edges, couching and cord making. It's generously illustrated in color and black and white throughout. It's soft cover, 128 pages and measures 8 1/4" by 9 1/2". Published in the UK, 2004. ISBN 0 903585 33 2
