Buy this book! Review by NULL NULL

All beaders, from beginner to expert, should have this book! It has everything - tools, needles, findings, bead shape and size descriptions, off-loom, loomed, knitting and so much more... AND it's spiral-bound so it stays open. The addition of colour photos and additional pages makes it a worthwhile investment for owners of the original version too.
