Follow Shae and her friends in this learn-to-sew bible covering everything from the anatomy of a sewing machine, fabrics, essential tools and basic sewing techniques geared to the first-timer. Learn all about sewing machine feet, interfacings and stabilizers, threads, different fabrics and even zippers. Designed to progress over one year, there are 12 projects (one a month) advancing complete beginners one step at a time by building on the skills learned from the prior project. Feeling ambitious? Each project also includes 'extra credit' which uses the techniques from a project, but just a tiny bit more technical. The best part is that each of these lessons results in a finished project you actually want to use! Packed with hundreds of detailed how-to photographs, this award-winning book removes the mystery around your sewing matching, taking readers on an engaging, detailed, comprehensive sewing adventure from a simple pillow case to zipper pouches and bags and finished with a full-size quilt. Whether sewing in a group as Shea's students did, or learning to sew in your own space, this is the only guide to sewing you will need.
