In 1985 Kooler Design Studio set up shop in the Diablo Valley of California. Over the years, Donna Kooler and her staff created a classic body of work for the needlework field that rivals any that exists today. This 208-page compilation presents 38 of the very best cross stitch designs from four essential staff designers: Linda Gillum, Barbara Baatz Hillman, Sandy Orton, and Nancy Rossi. Four chapters, one for each designer, are full of their most elegant, dynamic and popular cross stitch creations. Barbara’s gorgeous florals, Sandy’s intricate samplers, Linda’s charming wildlife and Nancy’s seasonal landscapes are well recognized and collected by discerning stitchers. This book is a treasure trove.
The book retails for US$24.95 but is currently on sale at Amazon for US$16.30! Go there now. And if you get the book before I do, post a comment and let us know what you think of it.
