But what I liked best is that it is a really friendly book - bright, easy to read and well illustrated. It explains everything concisely and clearly, not patronising nor overly technical. We have become best friends. I always hated sewing in school, and grumbled about sewing on buttons but now I am fast becoming an expert and making patchwork bags and frilly aprons for anyone who will accept them!
Whether you are a complete novice looking for someone to hold your hand as you start out on a new adventure, or you just want a wise friend to answer your questions and fill in the gaps in your knowledge, you will find that this cheap and cheerful book is all you need.

I also think the title of the book is a bit misleading as it is full of the same info that every single other book on sewing is also full of. It is also very much for beginners in my opinion. It's also not a particularly long book. As a sewing reference book to keep next to your sewing table, I would give it 2 stars and steer you towards the Reader's Digest book instead (which is practically a Bible for those who sew, by the sounds of it!) But, for a beginner it would be higher rating. So I compromised with 3 stars - it is okay, but probably better to source from the local library than buy to use as a guide.
