Postcard Reviews

Every time I go to a fancy restaurant or event, I always admire the beautifully folded napkins. Well... now I can re-create the designs at home for myself. I always thought they were difficult to achieve, but with a bit of practice and patience, this book shows the techniques required to fold and tease the napkin into something simple, delicate or even a bit more adventurous.

40 folded napkins are created. Every event is catered for and there is one for every mood. I discovered there is also something mindful about folded fabric, I loved the learning process and this is a book that makes it easy.

Functional and decorative, these creations are a work of art.

Amazon Customer Review

Good variety of ideas and the instructions and diagrams are really clear. You really can't go wrong.

Amazon Customer Review

This book is just bursting with ideas! The instructions are easy to follow with colour photos and clear diagrams. There's a napkin for just about every occasion and they look fabulous.
