Sew Everything Workshop – Book Review
Most sewing books start with the assumption that you have a very basic knowledge of sewing, such as how much room you need to sew or how to wind a bobbin on your sewing machine. They are also usually written in a ‘grown-up’ voice and can be a little… well, dull! This book assumes that you know absolutely nothing about sewing and talks to you in a very modern fun-filled style. Perfect for teenagers or anyone who finds the ‘serious’ side of sewing a turn-off!
