              Crafty Girls' Road Trip: New Zealand's Best Craft Places Plus 10 Craft Projects (EPUB ebook – Main)

              By Packer, Ann

              Aimed at those who get warm fuzzies just walking into a wool shop, simply have to stroke the fabric at the quilt store, and long to touch the textiles at museums, this roundup of New Zealand's craftiest places will go down a treat. It's essentially a guide to the many places in N...ew Zealand where you can buy everything you need to make your own textile-based crafts. The book lists treasure troves for fabric lovers, embroiderers, patchworkers, knitters, spinners and other crafty types to find not only materials but inspiration on the road. And because they need frequent cups of coffee to fuel their journey and somewhere to lay their head, the book includes some favourite places along the way. Organised geographically, it also has suggested itineraries for a day, a weekend, a long weekend, a week in each of the regions. There are also excellent lists of great crafty blogs and events.

              From New York Times bestselling, award-winning author Ann Packer, a tour de force family drama ( Elle ) that explores the secrets and desires, the remnant wounds and saving graces of one California family, over the course of five decades. Bill Blair finds the land by accident, th...ree wooded acres in a rustic community south of San Francisco. The year is 1954, long before anyone will call this area Silicon Valley. Struck by a vision of his future family, Bill buys the property and proposes to Penny Greenway, a woman whose yearning attitude toward life appeals to him. In less than a decade they have four children. Yet Penny is a mercurial housewife, overwhelmed and undersatisfied, chafing at the conventions confining her. Years later, the three oldest Blair children, adults now and still living near the family home, are disrupted by the return of the youngest, whose sudden presence sets off a struggle over the family's future. One by one, they tell their stories, which reveal Packer's great compassion for her characters, with their ancient injuries, their blundering desires. The way she tangles their perspectives perfectly, painfully captures the tumult of selves within a family ( MORE Magazine ). Reviewers have praised Ann Packer's brilliant ear for character ( The New York Times Book Review ) and her naturalist's vigilance for detail, so that her characters seem observed rather than invented ( The New Yorker ). Her talents are on dazzling display in The Children's Crusade, an absorbing novel that celebrates family even as it catalogs its damages ( People, Book of the Week). This is a superb storyteller (San Francisco Chronicle), Ann Packer's most deeply affecting book yet, tragic and utterly engrossing ( O, The Oprah Magazine ).
