A reference book on crafting and also an engaging book that combines history and personal narrative with the science that makes a craft possible and the passion that inspires it. Carol Endler Sterbenz is a crafter, a teacher, a homemaker, a wife, and a mother. Raised by immigrant parents who taught her the enduring value of resourcefulness and creativity, she makes her lifetime of experience and enthusiasm the foundation for this book. Sterbenz provides readers with not only practical information and direction but also a philosophy and methodology of crafting that builds confidence and ability. Providing thorough information on everything from tools and materials to techniques, this guide to seven beloved crafts contains hundreds of techniques; step-by-step directions supported by more than 800 hand-drawn illustrations, diagrams, and patterns; and insider secrets and troubleshooting tips.--From publisher description.
