There are scads of introductory sewing machine books available, but this is one of the first on sewing machine accessories—feet, needles, and other attachments. Gardiner (editor, Sewing World magazine) and Knight (The Dressmaker's Technique Bible) briefly cover the basics of sewing machines, but they focus on the specialized feet that come with the machine. A photo of a sewing machine foot is included at the top left corner of each spread, allowing for quick and easy identification. There's also information about how to use each foot—what it's for and how to sew with it. Beginners will find this book especially handy.
