The Needlecrafter s Computer Companion shows readers hundreds of ways to use an ordinary home computer to create needlework designs as innovative as their imaginations or as traditional as the ones in Grandma s hope chest. Interviews with computer-savvy stitchers give the book a personal feel and make it more accessible to the novice.
What a find! Judy Heim, columnist for PC World, realized that there are a huge amount of needleworkers quickly taking over the World Wide Web. Her unambiguous computer companion is a blessing for anyone using a needle for handwork. My copy is filled with little yellow post-it notes marking sections on where I can find patterns on the web, clip art, forums and software reviews. It even comes with two disks to give you a taste of what software is available. Worth every penny. Highly recommended.
