5.0 out of 5 stars Clear and consise September 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I gravitate towards Nancy Zieman's books because I like the way she writes them. I am not very experienced as a sewer as some are. I like you to just about draw me a picture so I understand the sewing concept! So, if you find other books confusing, give Nancy a try.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nancy Zieman Is Always a Winner! January 30, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Because I already have an excellent book on sewing with knits, I debated about purchasing another one. But because this book was written by Nancy Zieman, I knew the instructions, explanations, and content would be thorough and easy to understand. I've seen some of her television programs and have always been impressed with the way Nancy presents information and demonstrates techniques. This book is just as good as I expected, even better. I wasn't expecting project ideas, and felt inspired with those she included at the end. I know this will be a resource I will turn to often.

5.0 out of 5 stars easy, detailed instructions October 10, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book contained the most information on how to sew knits that I have found. The instructions are very clear and easy to follow. This definitely exceeds the Collette Guide in actual information. (I bought both.)
