Knowing how to sew allows you to mend garments and make up-to-the-minute fashions and soft furnishings inexpensively, as well as offering a great creative outlet. The Ultimate Sewing Bible, which in its last edition sold over 40,000 copies, provides hundreds of illustrations and instructions that make the learning process simple. Divided into seven sections to cover each skill, it provides ample opportunities for variations that the more advanced stitcher will enjoy putting into play. From choosing the right machine and picking fabrics to reading dressmaking patterns and altering existing garments, from sewing simple napkins to constructing a slipcover, this stylish and contemporary guide covers it all including information on caring for and repairing your projects, and a glossary to every sewing term.
