I just received my book today and DVD (5/30/09). I wish I had this book months ago because it could have eliminated the expense of other similar books. I love the format. It is easy to follow and non-intimidating. Sara explains the sewing terms in a simple, non-complicated manner. The many pictures help as well. She encourages you to be unique, looks at mistakes as learning opportunities as opposed to "stressing."

Even better, Sara takes the reader to the next level by sharing tips on how to build your business as a seamstress. That advice alone would be an additional book for most authors--not Sara. This information is priceless for anyone who has a passion to sew.

Thank you Sara and C&T Publishing. I love this book. I strongly encourage Sara's DVD as well.

This is one of those books that I wish had been around when I was a teenager. The author, Sara Trail, is an enterprising 13 year old who has been sewing since the age of four and has turned her hobby into a money-making venture along the way. In this book, she shares her enthusiasm and business savvy with her readers in an engaging and articulate way.

Her target audience is teens and tweens who are interested in learning to sew and making money from their sewing. I am just old enough that the abbreviated chat style language is a wee bit annoying, but it is perfect for the younger set. The writing style is lively and the many photographs mixed with eye-catching graphics keep the reader's interest. She writes as if she is speaking directly to the reader and entries from her personal journal are sprinkled in which lends a very personal feel to the text.

The first several chapters address the tools necessary for sewing and provide a brief introduction into the basics of sewing. I like that she gives suggestions on how to economize by borrowing a machine or visiting thrift stores for fabric. She also stresses safety techniques and includes her personal experiences with sewing injuries. The later chapters of the book address the sewing projects and her ideas for making money with them. The projects include a cellphone/mp3 player cover, an apron, hair scrunchy, a tote bag and a top, among others.

I was very impressed by her chapter on business basics where she discusses how to improve sales by dressing up the sales booth, making fliers, and presenting oneself to clients. She also includes a checklist for party planning (hosting pajama parties is one of her suggestions for making money).

1) it's a quick an easy to read.
2) sara is thorough and explains things well..so this book is GREAT for a beginner!
3) her personality is very cool, she's not overbearing in her descriptions.

I would say this is a must-have book for tweens, or beginners who like to take things very slow.

I didn't buy the book for me, but for my Grandaughter for Christmas. My interest is that it will promote the interest she has shown in sewing. We'll have to wait a bit to hear what she thinks of the product.
