Reviews - What do customers think about The World of Patterns?
Author's review Dec 26, 2003
The CD contains 150 times as much as the booklet, but the booklet does indicate the contents of the entire CD. Over 200 patterns are suitable for cross-stitch, many more for patchwork. I believe it has the largest collection of Islamic patterns of any single publication. There are puzzles of packing shapes into the plane which have probably never appeared before. All this within the basic collection of 4582 patterns.
