This book is well laid out, easy on the eyes. You will keep referring to it when you have a question or need a refresher on some techniques. If you plan to sew for a while to come this book will make a great addition to your library.

This is a book you will use for years. It starts with the basics: thread, needles and fabric. Then it gets into simple clothing, working its way to tailored clothing. There is also a chapter on basic quilting with a handbag and a baby quilt. Despite my years of sewing experience, I want my copy of this book.
