Overview

Professional designer, author and TV personality Linda Lee has created the perfect starter kit for first-time sewers – a convenient, well-organized and easy to use introduction to sewing. Packaged in an attractive and compact magnetized case, Sew Easy contains a 64-page booklet brimming with illustrations, diagrams, and techniques in one sleeve, and single project cards to pull out and work on in another. From the tools to use to the terms to know, from measuring and marking to pressing the fabric, from sewing a basic seam to embellishing with appliqué, this essential starter manual not only teaches sewing skills but helps newcomers to think creatively about their craft.

Each of the simple, fabulous, and whimsically illustrated projects introduces a new technique to practice, helping new sewers to make it first according to directions, then do it again in their own way. Once sewers become more comfortable, they will find plenty of guidance on how to adapt and alter patterns to suit their tastes, and to adjust the size.

Lee is a member of The Sewing Workshop, through which she offers lectures and workshops to needlecrafters. Sew Easy won Honorable Mention by the Independent Publisher Book Awards for Most Original Design in their “Ten Outstanding Books of the Year” awards.
