Format: Spiral-bound
I am a beginner sewer and I bought this book as well as Sew Fast Sew Easy. Both were around the same price, but the Sew Everything Workshop contains a lot more stuff. I was surprised how thick the book was and it's all in colour. It's got practical advice, and lots of sewing patterns. (Sew Fast Sew Easy only had 3). It's spiral bound so it's easy to keep a page open for reference. I highly recommend this to any beginner.

I am really enjoying this book. As a beginner sewer I find the tone of the book friendly, encouraging and easy to read. The instructions, tips and recommendations are right in line with information I've been given through several sewing workshops I've taken. It puts all the tidbits of advice given from the various instructors (that I had forgotten) in one handy place. Unlike other beginner books, there are several projects that I am actually interested in completing. I highly recommend this book.

This is by far the best introductory book for beginners.
If you need to learn everything from scratch, this is the first book you should try.
It comes with several easy and functional patterns. The spiral spine is great to keep it flat open while you work. There is plenty of pictures and the book design is very appealing, making it a fast and easy read, despite the large amount of information and projects.
I've read several books for beginners and this is the best of all.

Sew Everything Workshop by Diana Rupp

Considering the vastness of the subject, these 240 pp in 7.5 x 9" format, spiral bound between hard covers, is a mere short story. Nevertheless Ms. Rupp has chosen her words so well that she has me feeling that I comprehend all I need to know about the craft to make any garment and drapery that does not demand a Bond Street tailor.

In her kaffee klatch conversation, Ms. Rupp begins by explaining every necessary tool, continues with the care and handling of a sewing machine, and then gets into a few dozen of the most common and practical fabrics. From projects simple enough to delight a child, she progresses step by illustrated step to teach the cuts, gathers, and stitches of garments looking tailor made. I do believe that a beginner of ordinary aptitude will be ready to tailor a jacket by the time one practises all the lessons, although I should expect that it will have to be done twice to work out all the puckers in the seams and pulls around the shoulders.

I have never read a better organized, articulate, and inspiring teacher. Moreover, she advocates that beginners form sewing clubs to make the art a social activity. Clubbing is surely the best way for students to learn and advance their interests; professional scholars call their clubs a college.

SEW is a rare and wonderful education by a rare and wonderful young teacher. She gives me the feeling that I always knew how, but did not know how I knew.
