The READER'S DIGEST Complete Guide to Sewing

These 500 letter-sized pp in hard covers explains everything anybody is likely to do with fabric in the home, all profusely illustrated with line drawings.

Subjects include needles, threads, fabrics, weaves, hand stitching, machine stitching, the sewing machine, tools, patterns, fitting, alterations, darts, pleats, ruffles, shirring, collars, waistlines, sleeves, cuffs, pants, hems, zippers, fasteners, pockets, inner linings, interlinings, for men, women, children, and everything that can be made of cloth for the home. No canvas or leather wear.

Reader's Digest only publishes the most accurate, simple, elegant, and pelucid prose in the English language. Reader's Digest is never confusing or abstruse, but it must be dense and didactic to pack everything done with needles and thread into one tome. So, read slowly, read two or three times, study the illustrations, and chew thoroughly before swallowing.

No serious sewer's library is complete without this encyclopedia.

Great book for the beginner or someone who can sew but needs a little help. Good instructions and good pictures. Patterns little dated but good sewing never goes out of style.
