Crafting book recommendations

Since many of us are spending more time at home nowadays, why not try some good old-fashioned crafting? Creating something from scratch can be a healthy outlet for self-expression. For me, the repetition of certain crafting techniques have meditative characteristics. Checkout one of our crafting books, and try something new.
