I really love this book.  As a sewing fanatic nowadays, this book gave me the tools that I not only forgot about but new ones that I haven’t mastered yet.  If you are new to sewing or an old pro that needs to brush up on skills, this is the go to book for you.

I love the full colour photographs that show you step by step what you need to do for that basic stitch or a complicated hem, fastening, buttonhole, hem, everything is covered, even decorative stitching and quilting.
