Excited about this book being published but so far it's not been the best experience. The first item I decided to make has items missing from the list of supplies needed and no reference to the size of another item needed, and then the pattern has no markings on it when the instructions tell you to sew from dot to dot, it makes it just that little bit harder when there are no dots included in the pattern! As I work through the book, I may revise this review, but the experience so far has been a bit disappointing for the above reasons.

overall I liked the book and the projects are good - unfortunately, I was put off by the quality of editing (or lack of!!) For example, I decided to make the simple handbag, so made a shopping list from the list in the book ... didn't think anything about it (never made a handbag before!!) but when the bag was completed (looked fab!!) I still had left overs from the list (piping cord and tape)

I was a little annoyed as I - as many others - work to a tight budget, and having bought items I don't need feel that this book is not "true". I have seen Deborah moebes work before, which is the reason I bought this book - but I think she should probably take more care with the production of her books - they carry her name after all!!! - if this was my first sight of her work I would definitely not recommend

Format: Hardcover
This book is a fresh and modern overview of the approaches to sewing that are gripping us all at the moment. It tackles sewing in all major areas and comes from the point of view of the author, using her experience as a sewing teacher, namely that very few people want to learn how to sew everything. They may want to sew a quilt, or a bag or a wall hanging, but don't necessarily want to go through the motions of learning the A-Z in order to get there.

This book is great for those people and it is a refreshing approach. You can jump straight in and find what you want to know and get on and try it out.

The book is split into 5 main sections - Home Decor, Patchwork & Quilting, Bags, Sewing for Children and Clothing and there are 5 projects for each. Each project has full illustrated instructions that are easily followed and split into sections so that each stage is clearly defined.

There are snippets of information that give extra help with relevant techniques, such as piping for cushions, using a walking-foot for machine sewing. These are useful for giving you that extra bit of help where you might need it.

There is enough variety in each section that you can find something you want, and then possibly more to take it further. This is the other appealing aspect of the book - it helps you take your sewing to the next stage. There are plenty of tips and hints of how to tackle each kind of project, be it looking at colour combinations, hanging a quilt or making a dress, each being characteristic to that project.

What I liked about the book was that there was enough information to get you through a project.

Format: Hardcover
A really practical, informative book, which I think is ideal for a beginner who wants to learn or improve their sewing skills.

Stitch Savvy has 25 projects in total, 5 of each of the following categories, Home Decor, Patchwork & Quilting, Bags, Sewing for Children and Clothing. Starting at Level 1 which is classed as easy and progressing to Level 5 which is more complex. This book grows with you as your build your skills. A CD is included containing PDF patterns for 13 of the projects. You can read my full review on my blog http://duckeggthreads.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/stitch-savvy-book-review.html
