Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This straightforward, no-nonsense revision of the 2002 edition delivers on the cover tagline, "A Workshop in a Book." The lessons start with basics, such as winding a bobbin and sewing a hem, and grow progressively more complex. Most aspects of sewing, from fabric and pattern selection to finishing, are covered nicely, along with plenty of photographs. Projects include simple garments and home decor. Patterns are not included, but a DVD featuring QuickTime videos of various techniques (playable on both Macs and PCs) is part of the package.
