I purchased this book because I have purchased several of the author's sewing patterns, and I love how she is able to pack a wealth of detailed information in such a clear, easy to read way. This book is appropriate for all skill levels of sewing. The book starts out by offering basic information on necessary sewing equipment and terminology. It also includes chapters for more specialized information, such as trims, closures, home decor sewing, and garment sewing.
There is so much information packed in this little book, and it's really easy to navigate with color-coded sections marked in the upper right hand corner of each page. My favorite part of the book are all of the tables. There are an abundance of quick-reference tables for common sewing tasks that give standard bedding sizes, table linen dimensions, size charts, and so much more! And at the very end of the book there is a page of conversions to quickly convert decimels to fractions, yards to centimeters, and yards to inches to decimals.
I would highly recommend this book for anyone who sews. The information is clear, easy to read and understand, and useful to everyday sewing needs. It will be such a time-saver sitting next to my sewing machine, as I will be referring to it often.
