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 especially appreciate the editorial comments Deepika has added. Rather than leave out tips that might not apply to all situations, Deepika points out things that make them more applicable, or better. One tip is to fit things inside out to make markings easier. Deepika then remin

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 would request the Author to come up yet another book further for the Sewers.
I don't know what I was expecting, but this wasn't it. The tips are great. The organization is nil.
Jane Dugger
Great tips!

Definitely a buy - great for reference.
