Reviews - What do customers think about Crochet with Wire?
didn't like book Jul 30, 2008
Based on the reviews by others, I bought this book. Unfortunately, there is nothing in it I would really want to wear other than the front cover project. So, I am returning it to this site. I have Wiseman's knitting with wire book and like it much more.
Crochet and beads! Jul 9, 2008
It is exactly what the title says, it gives instruction for where to get wire, what types to get, how to crochet with it, and several projects including some that are beaded. The illustrations of the stitches are easy to understand, and the designs range from very delicate using seed beads to some pieces that are very bold. It explains very well start to finish. Love it!
great book Jun 12, 2008
I borrowed this book from my library. I found it so clear and easy to understand that I've decided to buy a copy. Many thanks to Ms. Wiseman for fueling my creative juices!
All You Need Oct 21, 2007
This book has a wide variety of projects. The instructions are clear and easy to follow with inspiring pictures.One of the best treats I've given myself in years -
I'd buy this one... Jul 12, 2007
Like most of the books on this type of medium, you should know how to crochet first and in the case of this book, know how to read a pattern. The designs are simple and depending on your taste, not thrilling. However, it's a beginner book. Let this one be the book you use to learn the craft then once you have the fundamentals down, let you own style come out!
