All of our bargain books are brand new, perfectly readable and represent a tremendous value! The bargain books are, however, publisher overstocks and remainders that TRW purchases at deep discounts. As a result, they may have a small mark through the UPC bar code or a small mark on the side of the book. This is simply to mark the books so they cannot be sent back to a publisher. Because of this, bargain books are non returnable to TRW unless they are damaged. Please consider this before ordering.

The author includes the basics of appliquT, hand stitching, and quilting with instructions for ten sewing projects in this attractive but difficult book. Step-by-step directions are at times hard to follow and even older children will need adult help going from the illustrations of a sewing stitch to the real thing. The book will be most useful for children already familiar with the basics of hand sewing who are looking for project ideas. Copyright 2002 Horn Book Guide Reviews

Gr 3-6-These series entries are attractively designed and have eye-catching photos and lots of kid appeal. Each book contains a wonderful assortment of gift ideas and projects. MacLeod's introduction covers measuring (metric and imperial), baking tips, and other dos and don'ts concerning food preparation. Appropriate safety/allergy warnings are given. The edible presents, prepared in three or four steps, include chocolate, party food, cookies, soup, seasonings, muffins, candy, and beverages. Ideas for wrapping, tagging, and mailing gifts are also given. Children will especially enjoy Truffle Mice, Great Granola, Gingerbread People, Chocolate Pretzels, and Reindeer Canes. Storms opens with a discussion of fabric, thread, supplies, stitches, and more. The instructions give the basics of this craft and specific projects, such as appliquéing clothing, a pincushion, or a wall quilt; making a pencil case, book bag, organizer, pin, pillow, a pieced mini-quilt, and the most challenging project-a Hopscotch Lap Quilt. In both books, the colorful photos and illustrations capture details and design and are an excellent accompaniment to the clear, step-by-step instructions. Useful and popular additions to library collections.-Augusta R. Malvagno, Queens Borough Public Library, NY Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
