Has anyone wot this book. On one of my frequent trips to micheals I saw it and said hmm you know what I just might need this. My dad's building me a craft hall. He says he's so tired of cluttered stuff that he'll build me a craft hall full of the following:

Knitting ( my yarn stash of ove 230 skiens and 32 pairs of needles)
Crosstiching(  A lot of floss and patterns)
Boondoggling( 150 spools and numerous skiens)
Quilting (Jo- ANN'S was going out of buisnees enough said)
Stamping (Used to scrapbook ended up over flowing with stamps)
Beading (Binged in NYC at 4 different LBS)

So if anyone has this book I'd greatly like reviews.

Your typing is confusing at the beginning. What is the title of the book?

It got mixed reviews on Amazon.
http://www.amazon.com/Organizing-Your-Craft-Space-Packham/dp/1402716028/ref=pd_bbs_sr_1/103-9634959-2761439?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1172885315&sr=1-1
Scroll towards the bottom for the reviews.  I always go here first and take a look to see what others have said...

I have the book and I would say it is a helpful reference but you don't need to buy it. The pictures are inspiring and there a few items and tips about planning your own space, but honestly, if you flipped through it at the bookstore, that would be enough.

I flipped through it at the bookstore, and honestly I was not at all impressed.  They had some good pictures that could be used as inspiration, but not so much useful written information.

You could easily get more ideas just on Craftster and from organizing websites. Who needs to buy the book?

Good tip about looking for reviews on Amazon too. I always do that and more often than not, I agree with the reviewers.

I checked this book out from the library and wasn't very impressed with it (I knit, crochet and sew, by the way).  It was nice as an interior decorating book, but most of the pictures were of houses with rooms that are much larger than my workspace.  It was fun to look through, but most of their ideas were a) out of my price/ space range b) applied to crafts I don't do.

I saw a copy at the library. Maybe you can find a copy at a local library and flip through it first. Or at the bookstore for that matter.
