My only complaint is that the book occasionally feels like an advertisement for Nancy's Notions. Some of the tools described are made exclusively by Nancy's Notions, so it seems like she's using the book as a platform to sell more of her products. I can forgive this, since many of the exclusive products are, in fact, quite useful tools to have. (But geeze! They're expensive!)
I'll give "Nancy's Favorite 101 Notions" four stars, subtracting a star for the blatant advertising. Otherwise, it's a very useful book for those who are just learning to sew. Even if you're more advanced, you might want to take a look and see if there's any sewing tools you've overlooked. I keep a copy in my sewing library, just so I can loan it to my students.
For each of the notions, Zieman provides a color illustration, its featurss and uses. In some instances, she also provides a budget-friedly option for the notion. Zieman has a wonderfully clear writing style and this book showcases it well. My one complaint is at least with one particular notion, I had to search the web a bit for it. I figured that if this was one of her 101 favorites, it would be stocked at her website.
this book was published a while ago but for the price, wanted to buy it so I could go over them again. Sometimes we forget the notions that help us.
SINCE THE ITEMS WERE STORED AWAY IN A SEWING KIT, MANY I HAD NOT BEEN ABLE TO USE FOR A WHILE DUE TO PREVIOUS SURGERY.
THIS IS AN EXCELLENT GUIDE AND THE COLOR PHOTOS ARE AMAZING. I LIKE THE WAY THEY DESCRIBE THEM AND THE DIFFERENT WAYS YOU CAN USE THESE TOOLS AND NOTIONS.
