A must-have for new seamstresses, or those who want to become new seamstresses, and a great reference for anyone who is looking to brush up on their sewing skills. (Kiki Magazine, 12/16/14)
With complete instructions for tried and true techniques, from the basic set-up to the finishing touches, an illustrated guide to how a sewing machine works, and advice on the accessories needed to achieve the desired results, this is a great book for the newbie sewer. (Notions Magazine, June 1, 2010 June 1, 2010)
I've been sewing for a long time, but I was self taught, and I'm still at a beginner level. This is exactly the book I need to improve my sewing skills! If you are a self taught sewist, this book is a wonderful resource that is able to answer your questions. I like Me and My Sewing Machine because it explains techniques that aren't common sense, and that I'm probably doing wrong. This book will help you sew projects that are beautifully crafted and durable. The information in the reference section is invaluable, and the patterns are cute, easy to sew, but will still help you work through new techniques. I wish Me and My Sewing Machine had been available years ago! (Connecting Threads, June 24, 2010 June 24, 2010)
Me and My Sewing Machine is an excellent reference manual to carry in your store. Excellent step-by-step photography along with easy-to-understand instructions detail the various kinds of seams, how to put in a zipper or hem, and it even includes patterns for some fun projects. (.

While quilting and patchwork are only mentioned briefly, this is a great beginning resource for the new sewer in your life. Includes patterns for seven simple projects and a useful glossary.

The book was damage more then I had expected. Very dirty and definitely should have been listed as 'poor condition' but it's still readable and I guess that's really all that... Read morePublished 6 months ago by Krystal Guffey

Kindle is always good. But, from experience... still need a real instructor to learn how to do anything.Published 11 months ago by Galimages
