You'd think that a group of ladies and one man who meet weekly at a shop called Crewel World wouldn't get into any trouble, but how wrong you would be. One member comes back from Thailand with a statue wrapped in silk, and the intrigue begins. Connie Crawford's soft tones are ideal for this cozy. She’s especially able in her characterization of Betsy Devonshire, the shop's owner, who is no stranger to solving mysteries. Various people wishing to get hold of the silk are depicted with appropriate deceptiveness. Crawford’s overall genteel narration contrasts with her delivery of the dramatic scenes. Along the way, we learn interesting tidbits like the fact that angora can be spun directly off the back of a rabbit. Charming, especially if you're a needleworker.
