Beautiful and enlightening,

Truly a masterful collaboration of work of art and craft. It was a joy to look at and read. The photography was outstanding and the content more and better than many much larger publications. You gave us wonderful patterns, a recipe, artwork, and things to think about. Thank you!


What an absolutely delightful publication! I love everything about it. Thank you Anne!

Bandit book

This was such a very special gift. Anne, you do everything right. Not only is it just a beautiful book, but the pattern is so wonderfully arranged, all sizes available, easy to understand, plus the receipe for apple cider donuts! Doesn't get better than this. Beautifully packaged and can be recycled, too. Thank you Anne for a beautiful book, and Jackie for a spectacular pattern!
