    Basic info for the very beginning sewist

    This is 18 pages, which appears to be a preview for future books, with the option to "tap" and preorder them. This is basically several pages devoted to a suggested sewing supply list. Followed by a few pages describing basic stitches. This would be good for the very beginning sewist who has no knowledge of sewing and has just started researching.
