A Note from ARNie about
The Encyclopedia of Tunisian Crochet:

About 18 years ago, I began experimenting with the Afghan Stitch in an effort to mimic knitting without using 2 needles.  At that time, I could find very little information on this type of needlework.  

Even after Tunisian Crochet had begun to make a come-back, and more books and patterns were available, I was disappointed that there was not one, all-inclusive stitch guide for Tunisian Crochet.  Consequentially, I set out to create one myself, and this book is the first installment to archive all the different stitches, stitch combos and other techniques possible in Tunisian Crochet.
For the experienced needleworker, there are over 400 stitches and stitch combinations with photos of the Front and the Back, where applicable.  

For the beginner, there are tutorials, Q&A’s, Tips & Tricks, and 560 photos to help better detail the diversity of Tunisian Crochet.  

The culmination of years of research and experimentation, The Encyclopedia of Tunisian Crochet has almost everything that I have found, and discovered on my own.

I'm currently working on Volumes 2 & 3 of the Encyclopedia of Tunisian Crochet, because I couldn't get ALL that I've found into one book.

Your Tunisian Crochet book just arrived....I am so pleased and impressed--with both the content and the quality. As a published author, I have a sense of how much devoted effort you put into this wonderful reference. Thanks so much; it's a tremendous resource. ~DM

I've been crocheting over 40 years and tunisian is probably my weakest area. Now I can round out my knowledge and skills with confidence I am being tutored by someone who truly knows the art of tunisian. ~Donna
