Checked this book out from the library. It had some worthwhile tips on cutting out patterns and a few tips on fabric - but otherwise I didn't get much out of the book. I was surprised by how much I already knew after reading sections of my owner's manual for my sewing machine. This book was supposed to come with 3 patterns: a pillowcase, a tote, and a skirt. The tote pattern was missing and I had to fumble with the pillowcase since I couldn't cut out the pattern (it being a library book and all) ...more

This excellent book was one I picked up from the library, and found that it contained nuggets of information that I learned the hard way by trial and error. I confess that part of the interest was in what seemed to be a little over-the-top self promotion on the part of the writer, but it was deserved.

What did I, a seasoned seamstress, get from the book? A little nugget on how to attach buttons so they are flexible yet firmly attached.

This is a pretty good book if you are learning to sew...but sometimes I think that the format is boring (black and white, no pics) but then I find some gem of information like how to sew on buttons just so...And I am happy!!!!

I love this little nifty book. It comes with 3 patterns (not the best patterns), but better than most sewing books that come with no patterns. I like the layout a lot - very easy read and user friendly when it comes to tips and hints!!

I was expecting this book to contain more information...it's really bare-bones, content wise. On the other hand, at least there's no danger of overwhelming the n00bs that way.
