5.0 out of 5 stars You need this!, 28 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Until I happened upon this book in a shop and browsed through, I hadn't known it existed. However, once seen I realised that I needed this, pronto! We are shown many different sewing feet, and how to use it. Now, I am not such a novice sewer, but there were plenty of feet I didn't really know how to use. Now I do, and I can keep referring to the book to update my knowledge and improve my sewing.

These boots are super comfortable, with a superb fit. They look good, and they are of really good quality. No negatives for these at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful and Beautiful!, 22 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is easy to use - just put it against the clean, dry wall/tiles, flip the clips and voila! I love the colour, too - nice and bright. I wouldn't depend on it to pull myself out of the bath, but for support while getting in the shower, it is perfect.

An absolutely gorgeous book, with loads of lovely ideas and projects - only problem is which one to do first! I bet we see loads more of this around Xmas, when it will come into it's own.

This is a very tiny book, but jam packed full of really useful info - even how to turn a slip into cami-knickers! Good fun.

2.0 out of 5 stars Well ....., 4 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Being a blog reader, I am well aware of what's out there to use that ensures me a tiny 'footprint' on this world. The projects weren't really anything I hadn't seen elsewhere, in other books or magazines. Disappointing, really. Sorry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, 4 Sep 2010

Beautiful book with some lovely patterns - some we have seen before, of course. But, with a history lesson thrown in, it's just a delicious book to browse through, then work out which pattern to do first and how much you are going to love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Your ticket to ride, 4 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
More than simply giving information about how to work out your market place, and how to proceed, this book has a wealth of other information, too. For instance, there is a lot about the contributors, their business ethos, products, websites etc.
