I am a 20-something just learning to sew. This book helped me get started in an easy and pleasant manner. With this book I did in 30 minutes what I couldn't do in three hours with my machine's manual; I learned to thread my machine, wind a bobbin, make straight stitches and turn corners. I also learned about trimming corners and turning points. The star pillow project was a great way to make sure I understood all the basics of machine sewing. After this book, I went on to Sew Fast, Sew Easy by Elissa Myerich to make some other beginner projects.
I will certainly save this book for my daughter when she is ready to learn to use the sewing machine.
I figure we needed to start at the basics so I bought this. It's written for children and although the language is a bit cutesy, without it I don't think I would have learned as much as I have. With it's practice sheets and easy to understand language it should be part of every beginners bookshelf.
I am teaching my cousin dressmaking at the moment, and will use this to help her practise sewing precisely on the machine.
