Stained glass supplies and tools, art and architectural glass, and so much more!
We are delighted to report that this book is back in print! We can't count how many times we've gotten requests for stained glass patterns related to ocean life, and this is possibly the finest collection available in book form. Designs include such popular subjects as dolphins, starfish, gulls, jellyfish, clownfish, seahorses and penguins; some scary creatures like sharks, eels and octopi; and fish we've never heard of: Chichlid? Moorish idol? Apparently, artist Carolyn Relei was paying attention in Marine Biology class.
Any of these 82 designs can be enlarged or reduced according to your needs, and can be adapted for use in other craft media. As with most Dover books, no instruction is provided.

Another excellent pattern book for you cat lovers out there. These 60 patterns by Jody Wright depict several different breeds on various states of cat-ness: napping, playing with yarn, stalking, "bathing" (what a lovely euphemism), stretching, or simply staring at you as if to say "Where's dinner?", when in fact you just fed her ten minutes ago. With a few odd exceptions, these patterns capture the essence of cats quite well. 64 pages. Black and white. Dover Publications.
If you love cats, this is the pattern book for you. Over 25 realistically proportioned cats in various playful poses and situations -- lounging, snoozing, stalking, playing with yarn, and doing various other nice things (and none of the gross things) that cats do. These patterns aren't computer generated like those you find in a lot of pattern books. They are the real deal, as evidenced by the photos of most of the finished designs. As with other books from West of the Moon Publications, the book production quality is not so high, but the patterns are great, and that's what matters.

Accurate illustrations, 60 in all, of common birds like the Black-Capped Chickadee, and not-so-common birds like the Ruby-Crowned Kinglet. Illustrations are in black and white, and only a handful of color examples are given, so you'll have to do your own research to make sure you don't choose Indigo Bunting colors for your Rufous-Sided Towhee. All of them are captioned so you know who's who, and they are depicted in their natural surroundings, in characteristic poses. Dover Publications.
If you like dragonflies, you will certainly enjoy these 20 designs from the mother and daughter team at West of the Moon Publications. While the production value of these plastic-comb-bound books is a little rough around the edges, the patterns are first rate, and that's what's most important. In addition to publishing pattern books, West of the Moon is an active studio, which is evident in the beauty and practicality of their designs. 20 pages, West of the Moon Publications.
We found these books in the basement and wondered why they weren't out for sale. Then we noticed that, on some of them, the insides were upside down. Open up the front cover of this 18-page book (or booklet, you might say) and you're looking at an upside-down image of page 18. Nonetheless, the contents are intact, perfectly useable, and offer a virtual window into the culture and mores of 1978, when this book was published by Hazel Pearson Handicrafts. This tiny tome contains 10 complete projects, 7 of which are presented as full-size patterns. The projects are named: Traditional Rose Window, Mirror with Shelf, Hamburger, Van (way groovy, man), floral table lamp, Antique Rose Window, Clock, Hanging Lamp, Hanging Planter, and Sailfish. Also included are 2-plus pages of basic instruction in stained glass. Aside from the upside-downness, this would make a great gift. If you're lucky, yours will be upside-right. And if not, well, with a bit of ingenuity and a staple remover, it is actually quite easy to rectify the assembly problem and make everything right-side up.
Backyard scenes, including realistic songbirds, a reclining cat, various adorable ducks and swans, and the usual plethora of birds and butterflies. Full sized patterns and color illustrations depicting the finished products. From CKE Publishing.

This book is one of a series, each entitled "Look what you can do with x pieces or less!", where x = number of pieces. (For some reason, we skipped over this one back in 2000 when it was first published, but that doesn't mean it's not a wonderful book, full of quality patterns you'd expect from Carolyn Kyle.) And now a math problem: If there were 15 pieces in 1995, 20 pieces in 2000 and 25 pieces in 2002, how many pieces were there in 2004? The answer is 10, which goes to show that you really don't need algebra after high school because it certainly wouldn't have helped you here. 36pp.

The premise upon which this book is founded is that it is possible today to produce work similar in character to that which was created at the Tiffany Studios early in this century. One must, of course, use art glass such as the exotica produced by Youghiogheny Glass Co., Bullseye or Uroborus. Mrs. Lampton happens to be the sales manager for Uroborus, so don't ask whose glass she uses throughout. We carry Youghiogheny (pronounced Yuck-a-ganey) and find it more than adequate. The patterns are all for small panels, and are illustrated in full color. 36 pages.
