Format: Paperback
If you learned to sew traditionally, this book is for you! It's full of tips and shortcuts and covers a variety of topics including: How to sew fast, textile information and care, basic tools, pattern fitting and alterations, stitching, darts, enclosed seams, setting in sleeves, buttonholes, zippers, cuffs and plackets, and much more. I read this book after having not sewn for a number of years. I couldn't wait to get back to it after reading this book. Not only is this book entertaining, it is a quick read loaded with information!

This is more basic than I thought when I ordered it. Does have some good points for organization and sewing in segments. There are good clear illustrations and instructions . It will be a good quick reference to keep by the sewing machine for all the techniques that I don't do too often and need to jog my memory , and a good book for beginners.

This has very good tips and tricks for both the beginner and the experienced seamstress. When my children were small, I made most of their clothes, and this book helped me increase my speed in sewing without sacrificing quality. I am glad it is still in print.
