Review:

From the intelligent pages of Threads come 33 articles on essential sewing skills that originally appeared in the "Basics" column of the magazine. Each section, by an expert contributor, focuses on one specific aspect, beginning with pre-sewing considerations like pattern layout and cutting, followed by the particulars of sewing notions and how to use them. The final chapter shows how to achieve success with various types of seams, insert a zipper, build darts and pleats, make bias strips, and more. Many sewing books presuppose an existing skill level; this one carefully demonstrates just how to build that skill. --Amy Handy
