Needlecrafts teacher Openshaw here provides directions for constructing basic cushions, pillows, curtains, valances, pelmets, tiebacks, and blinds for the home. Her meticulously detailed instructions at first appear a bit overly complicated, but that is the fault of the layout, which would have benefited from a greater separation between the projects and the better-labeled figures. Amateur sewers will be well guided by this book, making it a good choice for public libraries.
