With accessible and clear instructions, this book  teaches and builds upon basic skills to build up a repertoire of techniques and ideas, until you are able to design and adapt your own ideas and develop an individual sewing style. It guides you though winding the bobbin, threading the machine up correctly, and adjusting the settings. It discusses the skills necessary for making simple projects, such as measuring, cutting, pinning, tacking, and understanding fabrics, and goes over common techniques for inserting a zip, taking up a hem, and more. There are  several gorgeous projects with step-by-step instructions to provide practice and inspiration.
