Description

Sewing 101 is a modern-day primer on the basic skills and techniques of sewing.

Geared toward the absolute novice, it assumes you know little or nothing about the craft. With lots of step-by-step photos, useful sewing tip sidebars, and a painstakingly detailed glossary, Sewing 101 teaches you how to sew successfully. You will learn terminology used regularly in sewing, as well as all the basic skills that are the building blocks of the art. From threading the machine to sewing a straight stitch, to more complicated procedures such as installing zippers and following patterns, everything is covered.

Chapters include such topics as:
  • The sewing machine and its accessories
  • Sewing supplies and how to use them
  • How to shop for, prepare, measure and cut fabric
  • And more.

Each new technique is taught via the creation of an actual project, such as a pillow, window treatment, t-shirt, or baby blanket, thereby allowing you to learn a new skill and create an item to wear, display or use in your home. Dust off that machine and begin sewing for fun and function!'
