...this is a great wee book for the inexperienced sewer who needs a quick reference. Covers getting started- tools and fabric; sewing basics (including hand stitches), understanding patterns,fabric your machine; seams, mitering, gathers & pleats, bindings & borders;dressmaking & home furnishings plus care & repair. Lots of step-by-step pictures & ideas to get you started and build up your confidence.
A very useful handy book as a beginner to sowing. Yes it is an old edition as I was made aware but there is indication it was an an old library book. That is my reason for three stars but it is good sowing book. I would recommend though.
