Do go on Utube: for ' helpful tips'.. I love it. But this really will be the one book when you're so completely exhausted in the middle of something and don't know which way to turn - it'll get you out of it.
Happy sewing everyone X
This book explains in very clear terms how to make most of the sewing techniques you would want from beginner to seamstress. An invaluable resource that can be referred to when required or just to review. For most people these techniques will be well known but in my view it doesn't hurt to have a book like this ready to answer a problem. Consider it a dictionary, ready when you need to know the right way to do something.
Really good book!
