Hand and machine stitches are explained in detail, and there is a guide to hems and finishing. There are features on sewing for men and children, making home furnishings, colour, and fabric texture, as well as an A-Z of fabrics. In the knitting section, a description of the basics features needles, yarns and following stitch-charts, and there are sections demonstrating the knitting and crochet techniques which can give knitted garments a decorative finishing touch.
