You can dip in at any level - whether you're new to sewing or refining your art, whether you want to repair an old skirt or create a new one, whether you want to spruce up a curtain or design one from scratch. And with a Foreword by U.S. sewing teacher, Diana Rupp, this book has it all sewn up.

My wife thinks this is the best book on sewing, as recommended to her by her
sewing instructor. I got this for her for Christmas 2010...impressed with Amazon - got the product in less than 5 business days in the 3rd week of December.(with free shipping) I am now interested in doing on-line shopping.

Got the book for $28 half the price Chapters Book Store ($60) was selling it.

if you only buy one book on the art of sewing...this is the one to get. Very detailed and the illustrations make things easier to understand. I just started sewing and have been looking all over for a book that contains everything. This is one of the best and i highly recommend it to anyone discovering the art of sewing!!!!

I literally never sewed a day in my life. I bought this book in hopes to learn a little something before I dove in and it helped me a lot. I definitely recommend this to someone learning to sew, it goes through the basics as well as the tools you need to get started. So glad I got it.

This book has everything. I bought it for my girlfriend and she hasn't put it down. She just started to sew this fall and has learned a lot from this book already. A must have for anyone wanting to pick up sewing.

I've been sewing for a few years now, and had forgotten some of my basics, but this book was huge help to go over them. It has great step by step with clear pictures.
