Crafts & Hobby Books

SORT BY:
Enjoy a relaxing pastime and create stunning handmade items with craft and hobby books that provide useful advice and patterns. Add these books to your crafting library for a ready resource whenever you need inspiration. Choose from books on classic crafts and modern techniques.

Make Unique Gifts
Give family and friends one-of-a-kind items when you use the patterns and instructions in these craft and hobby books. Making your own gifts saves you money and allows you to create interesting and practical pieces.

Follow Step-by-Step Instructions
When learning a new skill, it's handy to have written instructions and detailed photographs to follow. These craft and hobby books walk you through all the steps of a project and let you work at your own pace to advance your skills. Beginners can use the books to learn a new craft, and veteran crafters benefit from an occasional refresher.

Teach Children New Skills
Teaching children how to make handmade objects gives them something constructive to do on long car trips and rainy days. Combine these lessons with art books to teach students about a variety of art mediums. Look for craft and hobby books that are geared toward specific age groups to find projects that get kids' attention.

Reuse Patterns for Multiple Projects
Once you find a project you love, you can recreate it again and again with the reusable patterns in these craft and hobby books. Simply change the fabric color or the type of yarn to create a project that looks new every time. Creating multiple projects in an assembly line is a quick and efficient way to produce gifts for holidays or special events.
