After garments we go home dec and do the pillows, curtains and shades. There are enough projects in here to keep you busy for about 6 months at which point you should know the basics & know where to go from there on your own. Daunting, eh? Well I was impressed and got going immediately. I got really psyched and I think a project a fortnight is doable. They recommend making more than 1 garment of each type to solidify what you know so unless you're very industrious a project a week is a rough haul. This book is easy, approachable and most importantly, inspiring, so much so instead of using my old high school one I actually bought a brand new beginning machine (A Viking Huskystar 207).
If you've been thinking about sewing buy this book and take the plunge. Until I got this book I never realised how much was based on the simple t-shirt (pj's, sweats, turtlenecks). Enjoy.
More than half of the book consists of "Home Decor" sewing, so, if that's what you're interested in, I recommend that you instead just buy the book "Home Decor Sewing 101" by the same author. I also bought this book, and while there doesn't appear to be overlap between the two books in regards to the projects featured, the Home Decor book is more comprehensive.
I would have given this book an even lower rating, but, it deserves a few stars simply for the nice layout and copious color photos that accompany every page. Additionally, the spiral binding allows the pages to lay flat when open, which is great for using right at the sewing machine.
In summary, if you want a book full of beginning sewing projects, then this book fits the bill. But if you're looking for a good beginner's sewing book with basic techniques, another book might be better.

I checked this manual out of the local library because I needed a refresher course, and liked it so much that I ordered my own. The book exceeded my hopes. Read morePublished 3 months ago by fruitloop
