Sewing Book Bliss

You can learn so much from a book. I love each of these sewing books for different reasons. I hope you are able to pick up at least one of these and learn a new sewing technique or make a beautiful new handmade piece.
Sewing today is not like it was when your grandmother started to learn.
Look at this skirt! It is perfect! I want one too! Most of sewing is in a straight line!
To know your sewing machine, is to know your best friend.
Diana Rupp makes everything look so easy and fun!
These clothes almost make themselves! This is the perfect book if you want to learn to sew your own wardrobe.
If you want to learn a new technique or you need a reference guide this is the book for you.
I have made 5 patterns from Heather Ross’s book, Weekend Sewing!
I hope you enjoy this list.
Please share your favorite sewing books that are not listed here. Post a comment and share your favorites!

I love One-Yard Wonders. When I bought my copy, I also bought one for my niece who was learning how to sew. She also loves this book.

I love Kay Whitt's 'Sew Serendipity' and N. Langsdon's 'Sewing Clothes Kids Love'. I also agree that Weekend Sewing is a great book!
