I have been searching for a technique book for pillows and curtains every time I take a trip to JoAnn's and have NEVER found anything that I was satisfied with. I found a copy of this book at a brick and mortar book shop and was knocked off my socks with the pages inside. There are formulas for making all the various pillow types that you can adapt to any pillow form size - EXACTLY what I have been looking for, for years! Same with the curtain section of the book. This book is so awesome, I'm sorry I hadn't found it sooner!

I own 6 or more other books on home sewing but there's always some critical info missing. This one is by far the best I have found and I am an experienced sewer and graphic designer.
This is a full color, handy spiral bound book packed with detailed information, many and great drawings and photographs on making anything from drapes, curtains and pillows of all styles and the fabric selection with designer tips on finishing.
There is also a lengthy list of suppliers with information on how to contact them.
If you are planning to try to make drapes, curtains or pillows yourself this book is good for beginners and experienced sewers. Highly recommend it.

Great book to take with you when looking for ideas to decorate. Color combinations make for a more confident journey into home sewing. A great gift to someone who is just moving into their first home/apartment/townhouse, etc. Many, many great ideas!

I bought this for my daughter in law. I bought her a sewing machine last Christmas and taught her to use it, and she's been making home decor items, using an old book I gave her for guidance, for several months. I thought she'd enjoy this book. It has a hard cover, and it is spiral bound, so the book will sit flat, enabling the user to follow the directions and refer to the book easily. It is excellent for a non-expert seamstress. (Yes, I know "seamstress" is archaic, but, to me, the word "sewer" brings images of wastewater, etc, to mind. I mean no offense.) It goes through different types of stitches and fabrics, and has how-to directions, with pictures for many things, including different types of throw pillows, curtains, draperies, duvet covers, tablecloths, place mats, napkins, etc. Suggested fabrics for each type of project are included. I scanned this book pretty carefully before wrapping it for Christmas, and I know my daughter in law will enjoy it as she decorates the house she and my son just bought!

This book appears to be just what I need. I do not sew but I recently brought a sewing machine. I have lots of questions, so I needed a tool to start with. This books appears to be just what I am looking for.

... because you never know what your next project might entail ! It's a great LAY-FLAT, SPIRAL BOUND reference book to have on hand.

It is CHOCK FULL of very useful (color!) fabric pictures, notions explainations, design ideas and a glossary and list of resources that will keep you busy for hours! It says on the back that it will be "an invaluable resource for your library" ... I agree 100% !
