Tired of retail shopping? Looking for a way to save some cash? Thinking of taking up sewing but not sure where to start?  This handy guide reveals everything sewers need to know to start making and mending at home with confidence. The book begins with all the information sewers need to choose the right machine, and covers the basics of using a sewing machine, from winding a bobbin to threading up and adjusting tension. A section on design covers the ins and outs of working with digitalized software, and the key sewing skills needed are covered next, including basic stitches, sewing seams, hemming, and inserting zips. There's an invaluable troubleshooting section as well as care tips and a jargon-buster glossary.
