Often you guys ask me, what's a great sewing book for beginners?
Well, let me tell you.
And then FIVE of you can try it out for FREE!
I highlighted it in my Four Favorites book post the other week. The title is Stitch by Stitch and it's a wonderful blend of info for beginner and intermediate sewers.
And just in case you missed the headline here....
We're giving away FIVE of them!
I really hope you win. Yes, you! (and you too). But if you don't win....there's also a consolation prize. Keep reading.
First, here's my review again of the fabulous book and why you're going to like it.
(Mmm, Pretty cover).
Okay, want to learn how to sew?
And in a language that you can understand?
Then you'll want this book. I've known Deborah from Whipstitch for two years now and I haven't figured out which I love more: her creative ideas, or her clever writing style. The lady has a gift for words, with a light-hearted punch. In this book, Deborah begins by talking about sewing, why it's popular, and her theory on "the Sewing Gap" (so very true). She talks about the Modern Sewist,
shares funny details, such as this sewing timeline. How I love that only 2 dates exist for the last century; one of those being: Project Runway. Priorities and realities.
and then.....Deborah walks you through everything, step by step.
She even shares detailed info on how to Thread your Bobbin! Now you never have to feel silly asking about that.
What I like is about the book is that it's built for beginners BUT even if you've been sewing for years, it's refreshing to hear the basics again from a seasoned veteran.
Deborah's goal with the book is to help you build knowledge from one project and then carry those skills over into the next one. So basically, all the projects are intertwined (and beautifully photographed).
Every project has those same detailed step-by-step photos. Lovely!
And in the back of the book is a CD full of pattern pieces.
A beautiful book and a very pleasant read.
