4.0 out of 5 stars Enough projects to keep you going for years!, 16 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Martha Stewart's Encyclopedia of Sewing and Fabric Crafts: Basic Techniques Plus 150 Inspired Projects (Hardcover)
The first thing that strikes me about this book is its very impressive size and weight! It is a huge book which made me hope that there must be a wealth of knowledge inside.

The good news is that there is! The book starts off with a very useful fabric glossary, followed by a thread glossary before launching to techniques such as appliqué, quilting and embroidery.

The rest of the book is an A-Z of projects...from Animals (including sock dogs and a felted pig) through to Wall decor. Each project is accompanied by written instructions, photos and diagrams in places to further demonstrate techniques.

At the end of the book there is a tools and material section detailing the different equipment you could use and what they are used for plus a tips and extra technique section. There is also a list of places you can get sewing supplies including several of our customers such as Sewbox, The Make Lounge, The Eternal Maker and Gone to Earth. Also there is a cd-rom at the back of the book with patterns and templates on it.

If you are looking for a book with a lot of projects that will introduce you to some new techniques along the way then this is the book for you. It wouldn't describe as an encyclopedia of sewing as such, more an encyclopedia of sewing projects.
