About the Author
About the Author: Linda P. Schapper is a professional when it comes to stitch work. Most of her ideas have a heavy influence of folk-art style. She expresses these ideas in the form of beautiful quilts, liturgical textiles, paintings and crochet. Schapper has been traveling and teaching in over 30 countries. Her various experiences and travels have given her ideas for creating and organising over 100 exhibits of her patchwork quilts. She has penned down eight books. Four of the books written by her are on crochet. She lives in Orlando, Florida.

A relatively minor complaint: Some of the stitches are well-known and have commonly used names, but the names are not used here, so there is no way to look them up other than by flipping through the appropriate section.
And now a general rant: Every single crochet stitch book that I have ever seen shares one major fault: they tell how to do each stitch in even rows. No information is ever given on working in rounds or increasing or decreasing. Nor are there weight recommendations given. It would be nice if it said a certain stitch works best in lightweight yarns or threads or that it can be worked in bulkier yarns. Any of that information would be very helpful, but no one ever does it. I don’t know why.
Would I buy this again? In a heart beat! Maybe someday this author will come out with a "complete" book of edgings. :)
