Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

A tendency--maybe occasional, maybe frequent--to misplace objects at home happens to us all. But when that sought-for item is as tiny as a sewing needle or as easily camouflaged as a spool of thread, it's time for sewers to at least ponder organizing their supplies and work space. Giesbrecht does an adequate job of, first, envisioning the various functions of the sewing area and drawing up plans to meet needs, and, second, explaining all the currently available permutations of organizers, from Peg-Board to ready-to-assemble cabinets. In many instances the photographs are grainy or yellowed, though the charts and other types of illustrations are clear. And, sometimes, the litany of brand names is a bit too commercial. But this is a good place to start for folks who can't find a needle in a haystack . . . or simply on the floor.

Review

Disorganized sewing areas are common; but with the help of this guide, the problem can be reduced. Enjoy a strong key to designing a sewing space which works and which encourages ongoing organization rather than chaos. Chapters include floor plans, photos and charts as they describe different options applicable to both small spaces and larger workshops. -- Midwest Book Review --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
I found the author's information to be mostly common-sense, and not very unique. She spent 50 pages on sewing technique, which, according to the title, was not the purpose of the book. What I thought was going to be an interesting section on what to take to sewing classes was disappointing, as you would need a moving van to take everything the author suggested. Overall, I would say it was not good use of my money or my reading time, and I would (conditionally) recommend it only to very inexperienced sewing "students."

There are very few useful tidbits of information in this book. The ideas presented weren't particularly creative or inspiring. You'd be much better served with a copy of "Dream Sewing Spaces" by Lynnette Ranney Black.

I am a beginning quilter and liked the "basic" information Myrna gave in this book. It is helping me sort through the piles of debris I have already accumulated. I can use all the help I can get.

This book is a masterpiece, even though it is written in a style that's a bit arcane. Giesbrecht really knows her business. She even teaches a course on this subject at QuiltUniversity.com!
