Very useful for a total beginner,
This review is from: Curtains for Beginners (Seams Sew Easy) (Spiral-bound)
Perhaps I was just a little ambitious, but having never used a sewing machine in my life, I embarked upon making curtains as my first project. This book was my bible. It goes through everything step by step and explains the basics such as cutting material, measuring etc. I didn't use any other book, but just supplemented this book with some instructions found on the internet to adjust the curtains as I wanted them. That said, there are plenty of styles in the book to choose from and I was just being very picky about what I needed. The end result was a great set of curtains for the spare bedroom! The learnings from the book in terms of the basics of machine-sewing have also helped me in subsequent projects with my sewing machine. Would definitely recommend it for beginners.
