A collection of needlecraft projects, which includes over 250 items designed in 1/12 scale to bring charm and realism to dolls' house interiors. Everything is included, from the basic essentials, such as carpets, curtains, bedding and soft furnishings, to the small accessories, such as lampshades, cushions, pictures and ornaments - even a macrame hammock. There are projects for everyone, from simple, effective ideas for the beginner to more challenging miniature "heirlooms" for the experienced stitcher. Each of the contributors has an international reputation in her field of work: Isobel Hockey - knitting and crochet; June Stowe - knitting and pattern design, specialising in period authenticity; Sue Bakker - needlepoint designer; Doris Lockyer - embroidery; Joan Ince - upholstery.
Although the upper edge of the text block is a little dust soiled, also the top of the dust jacket spine has a small closed tear at each side, the book is tightly bound and the glossy dust jacket remains colourful and attractive. With clear text on clean pages, crisp b/w diagrams and charts, plus numerous attractive colour photographs, this book is in very good condition and would make a delightful gift.
