Mostly about machine sewing, scant on hand sewing
on 25 July 2017
It's a good book full of useful instruction, but it's really a sewing machine book. Only six pages on hand sewing and I had to buy yet another book to learn handsewing. That said, it covers everything to do with sewing machines, from basic stitches to putting in zips, darts and pleats and projects which become more challenging as you go along. It also covers fabric choice and care, as well as thread, and all the sewing accessories you'll need. Good for learning to use a sewing machine, but disappointing if you're hoping to learn hand sewing.
