Accomplished seamstress Bev Dillon is the host and instructor for her third craft tape (the first two were Knitting From Start to Finish*ing with Bev Dillon, reviewed in our March 1989 issue, and Tatted Lace From Start to Finish*ing with Bev Dillon, reviewed in our June 1990 issue). In this program, Dillon explains what items will be necessary to complete crocheting projects, guides viewers through the terminology, and demonstrates various crochet stitches, and then shows viewers how to make a simple scarf, shawl, ripple afghan, crocheted bears, granny squares, string bag, puff stitch hat, cape, bead trimmed bag, hot pad, lace scarf, and more, while also teaching applicable techniques. The accompanying booklet has patterns for all of the projects on the tape. A good program with more that enough projects to keep viewers crocheting for months. Recommended. -- Video Librarian, May-June 1993About the Actor:
