5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful book, 20 July 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sewing Machine Basics (Paperback)
I'm not a beginner, but I am an entirely self-taught needlewoman and I fully realise that there are probably easier ways to go about things than the way I do them. This book was remarkable in that it covered every detail of my sewing machine and introduced me to things like the various feet that I'd never fully understood.

After the "getting started" section, the book is divided into a series of workshops and each workshop ends with a project to make up, a cushion cover, an apron, a skirt and so on. Just about all the techniques you will ever need are used in these projects and the patterns included seem simple to use. I'm fairly certain I will use all of them - even the child's dress when I have no children, because it looks so pretty (and the charity shop will appreciate it).

One of the most useful features is a chart showing different fabrics along with the most appropriate needles, thread and so on to use with them.

So far I've had the book less than a week and my new sewing machine arrives tomorrow. My fingers are itching to get started.

Would be useful to have a review after using it *with* the new sewing machine

As requested: I used re machine on half a dozen projects taken from the book with great success.

My favorite was the apron which I still use. I didn't make the child's dress because before I got to that stage I was making dresses for myself!
