5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down Jan. 31 2004
By A Customer
After reading a couple other sewing books and getting nowhere in my quest to teach myself to sew, this book answered all the questions I had as a beginner. I literally couldn't put it down because suddenly all the sewing, fabric and pattern jargon that had been rolling around in my brain suddenly made sense. I stayed up into the wee hours of the morning reading it from cover to cover.

5.0 out of 5 stars YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE A NEW SEWER! July 27 2003
I've been sewing for over 30 years, & I still turn to this book as a way of either improving on old methods or simplifying them in some way. I've gotten books over the years that never seem to have my particular question. This book ALWAYS does. It is easy to understand, the illustrations are clear. It shows each method the "conventional" way AND the Overlock way. The section on fabrics is pretty good, although if you want a more comprehensive book, look for Sandra Betzina's book on Fabric Saavy. If I were learning to sew & could only have one book, I'd go with this one. I would highly recommend the Spiral binding as it lets the book lie flat--important if you're working while using it.

5.0 out of 5 stars STILL the best!!! June 27 2002
By A Customer
I used an earlier edition of this book back in school, in Home Ec class, and I used it 20 years later to teach my daughter sewing. I also used it myself, all the years in between.
I'm an advanced sewist, and I would recommend this book to anyone learning to sew, or who wants to improve their skills and knowledge. Its an excellent book, and the newer edition is just great. Its also a good reference for more experienced sewists to have on hand.

5.0 out of 5 stars great for beginner Sept. 6 2003
I'm just learning how to sew and needed a full referenece since I haven't sewn since I was in 7th grade and forgot everything I may have learned. Lots of good pictures, explainations of techniques. Very straightforward.

5.0 out of 5 stars Xlnt for beginners Nov. 8 2002
I'm a 50-something male who's never sewn anything before, and I looked at many books before choosing this one. Easy reading; The text and illustrations are clear and assume the reader knows nothing. My local community college offers garment construction classes and uses this as the required textbook.
Be aware that there no longer is a coupon for a free pattern included, as indicated by other reviewers.
