Whether you’re just beginning to learn to sew or you’re a seasoned sewer looking to improve your skills, I highly that you pick up a copy of Diana Rupp’s book S.E.W. ~ Sew Everything Workshop. This book is packed with great projects. The patterns are easy and the instructions are extremely clear.

This is a fabulous way to learn to sew. The projects are loaded with great pictures and the instructions are thorough.  The projects are rated one to three spools to help you start easy and progress as you build skills.  And while most sewing books read like textbooks; this book is the exception. Great detailed instructions and a healthy dose of  humor set this book apart!

Book Review: Sew What! Skirts: 16 Simple Styles You Can Make with Fabulous Fabrics

Sew What! Skirts: 16 Simple Styles You Can Make with Fabulous Fabrics

I picked up this book at Borders this weekend and have to say I highly recommend it especially for beginning sewers. One thing that I love about this book is that it has tons of great of the tips & techniques that even the seasoned sewer will appreciate. And if you’re interested in pattern-less sewing this is definitely one book you’ll want to check out. The projects look really fun and seem pretty easy. The only flaw I’ve found with the book so far is that it doesn’t do a good job of explaining darts. But since this book explains how to make a skirt from scratch it’s definitely something you’ll want to add to your own sewing library!
