I am taking an Intro to Sewing class through our Parks and Rec Dept. and this book is our bible. It is easy to read and understand. It is broken down into different chapters that address what you need so you don't have to read the whole thing. You can just go to the section you have a question on and it will walk you through it step by step. If you are just wanting to learn the basics of sewing this book is great!

I bought this book as a gift for a friend wanting to learn to sew. I was working on a project at the time and found some great tips to a problem I was having and was so glad to read it before giving the book away! I should order another for myself even though I've been sewing for many years.

I only read the free preview, so the purchased version may differ. There were several places that should have had illustration that were blank.
