Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Sewing can save the home decorator a lot of money, and this book introduces some basic techniques and projects. Oddly, it is oriented vertically, so readers must flip the pages up. After an oh-so-brief intro to sewing machines, stitching and machine accessories and tools are discussed. Illustrations are disappointingly sparse, with no photos to inspire or show detail. Some of the step-by-step instructions are quite good, with some valuable sections on finishing details like corner construction. But the projects, which include bed covers, a small variety of curtains, and other decorative work, are a bit lackluster. There are better beginning sewing books available, such as Sewing 101: A Beginner's Guide to Sewingfrom Creative Publishing and New Complete Guide to Sewingfrom Reader's Digest. This uneven volume is recommended only for larger collections or where there is demand.
