I'm a beginer sewer. I just took my first 2 lessons in sewing, and am able to use my machine to make simple things, like pillows. I checked this book out from our library, and looked at the first project. It seems pretty complicated, and I felt like there were some steps missing. It was explaining how to create a simple apron, but the steps didn't all make sense to me. I think this book is more for an intermediate sewer, who knows more of the terminology, and all ready understands basic sewing methods.

simply put, I was looking for a first sewing book; since I bought the machine and didn't know what to do with it. But this book is rather for someone who already knows the basic basics, like how to thread the machine and what a seam allowance is..

But it's helpful just for ideas and may be of use in the future. I would actually recommend the idiot's guide for sewing if you are a novice like me.

This is a wonderful book - it's got everything from simple garment alterations to exciting home dec projects - including some great bed canopies! There are dozens of great projects - most are simple enough for beginning stitchers, but creative and clever enough to engage the interest of the experienced ones, too! I've already selected a few projects to try. This is a foundational book that should be in any machine stitcher's reference library. And I give this book bonus points for its inviting layout and lay-flat, spiral binding!

I bought this book because I wanted to teach myself how to use my new sewing machine. Well I was rather dissapointed when I got it. I was looking for something that would really teach me how to do things on the sewing machine that are relevant to today. And thats not what I got with this book. It reminds me of something I would find in my grandmother's house that she has had for many years.

I would not recommend this book.
