Curated by Melinda Barta and the Tulip Brand Company of Hiroshima, JapanThis book was written for handcrafting enthusiasts who enjoy beading, embroidery, knitting, crocheting, and needle felting. Just as a carpenter would research the best saw blades and a chef would seek the most ergonomic knife, it's important for crafters to approach their tool selections with care. Each chapter of this book will educate you on the anatomy of tools, provide basic information on how the tools are used, help you choose the correct sizes, discuss specialty tools, and finish up with helpful tips and tricks. Though most handcrafting tools seem harmless, choosing the wrong tools can lead to major discomfort, arthritis, and hand fatigue. With this book, you'll learn how the best handstitching tools are made and the important key features that allow you to enjoy crafting for hours on end. Good tools are also a smart economic choice: By investing in long-lasting quality products, you'll avoid the need to continuously restock bent and broken tools.
