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.

To know your sewing machine, is to know your best friend.

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!
