Very useful tips. Unlike other reviewers, I found the organization to be better than other compendiums of tips I've read (for example, Knitting Tips Trade Secrets). I'm glad I got it at the library, and now will buy it.

I probably didn't really NEED to buy this book, but I did! There are a lot of great tips and tricks in here. There are also a lot of so-so (sew-sew, ha!) tips here too. A lot of the tricks could probably be found online somewhere, but it'll be nice to have this as a reference when I'm working on projects.
I have been sewing off an on for over 20 years and I found this book to be quite useful. So many times I find myself wondering if there is another easier way to use a technigue. This is a great one sounce place to find alternaties or shortcuts to sewing. I had not headr of the website, but now I have it bookmarked and I check it out before a big project.
KIV for relevant and helpful tips.
The tips are great, and this book is a good read, but I won't be adding it to my sewing library, as the tips are very random, not well organized and not searchable. If I'm looking for tips or a technique, I'll just go online.

This is an excellent. The best so far for the Sewing Community.

I don't know what I was expecting, but this wasn't it. The tips are great. The organization is nil.
Great tips!

Definitely a buy - great for reference.
