kmegamom writes: I'm always looking for new craft projects to make with my grand children, this book looks like it's got some new ideas in it that we haven't tried yet and that are quick enough to keep their attention!! Sometimes I can get one interested but lose the the other one to boredom!! They range in age from 4 to 11. This would be such a great book for us!!! If I don't win, how can I buy it?

AKUA writes: This was made for me! I crochet, weave, torch fire metal, kilncast, sandcast, and flamework glass, braid and wirework, but sew O NO. It frightens me to figure out the bias, cut in straight lines, thread and wind bobbins and needles. So I hope I win, because I love creating, but not sewing.

physicslass writes: As a former teacher for young adults with learning disabilities, I helped direct the craft club. It was a great experience for the students to be able to create something of their own when they never believed they were creative before. This book would be a great resource for anyone working in this field.
