    Very disappointed

    I bought this book because it was suggested, (and several of the projects were shown) on Sewing With Nancy. Once I got the book, I found out that the patterns that were of real interest to me were small and had to be enlarged. Not simply, but by numbers like 280% or 296%. I wrote to the Sewing with Nancy show about this and was told that I would have to take the patterns to a place like Kinko'sT because they have the capability to do this. So, not only did I spend the money on the book, but I would have to spend the money on the cost of enlarging. It's okay for straight sided pieces, but several have curves. I'm not at all happy and the book just sits on my shelf.

    Extremely Disapppointed!

    Lenova wrote exactly what I am thinking, and I agree with her 100%. I spent all that money on a book that I was excited about, got the book, and NO patterns that I could use. I checked at Kinklel's and they want $2.50 per page to enlarge the patterns so they can be used. I saw the book on Nancy Sew program, and will not get another book on her recomendation. Sorry, but will not buy another book from this author. I give it one star, and that is all.
