Loved this book. I have sewn for years but was self taught. This filled in the gaps and opened my eyes to SO MANY tricks and tips. Well worth the time and money.
I bought this for my granddaughter who is a beginning sewer. She has stated that the pictures and the explanations are great - easy to understand. The whole book makes sense to her - she is a reader and studier before she starts a new project - states she has to know what she is getting into.
I am just getting back into sewing after about 28 years and I checked this book out from the Library. The layout is fantastic and it has great information and tips that I did not pick up when I was taking the Beginning Sewing Course at a Sewing Center recently. I plan on purchasing this book in the very near future. It is a must add to my library for a great resource tool!
