5.0 out of 5 stars A very useful reference guide for sewists, 12 Feb 2012

This review is from: Handbook of Sewing Stitches: An Illustrated Guide to Techniques and Materials (Paperback)
The title of this book is slightly deceptive; this book is much more than just a handbook of sewing stitches. It is also a guide to tools and equipment, techniques and a textile directory. It may be compact but it is packed with information.

In the stitch directory section there is a photo of each stitch, step by step instructions on how to do it with accompanying diagrams plus advice on when to use it, with which fabrics and alternative stitches.

The techniques section covers various hems, seams, edges, buttonholes and zip techniques again with photos, diagrams and step by step instructions. The fabric section describes the fabrics, tells you what garments and projects it is best used for, gives cutting advice and sewing suggestions. There is a detailed index at the back to you can easily find whatever you want.

This is a very useful reference guide for sewists.

This review also appears on The Sewing Directory.

This review is from: Handbook of Sewing Stitches: An Illustrated Guide to Techniques and Materials (Paperback)
This illustrated guide gives instruction in basic skills in stitches with a textile directory as a bonus. There are over 70 fabrics and many machine and hand stitches suitable for all skill levels. This is a very handy reference for any sewer. It was previously published as Sewing Stitch Bible. This review first appeared on yarnsandfabrics website.

What a useful book this is. Everything you need to know, well written with great illustrations. I am a sewer but still learnt something, I used it teaching a sewing club at school.

I'm an experienced needlewoman but when I saw my friend's copy of this book I decided I just had to get a copy of my own. It's full of detailed and very easy to follow instructions, showing step by step images of how to do umpteen stitches and stitch finishes. I think anyone who is interested in sewing or embroidery of any style would find this book useful. It's even interesting to thumb through even when you're not looking for a particular stitch or technique. Excellent book and worth the cost.
