For my latest sewing students:
Even with all the great YouTube videos and photo tutorials on the web, I still think you need a great sewing book handy. I have a few favorites.
I reviewed The New Complete Guide to Sewing here in 2008. I still LOVE this book and recommend it to all my sewing students.
I reviewed Sew U here in 2008. I would update this review just a bit today. After using this book for several years, I’d suggest that this book is worth the purchase for 2 reasons: 1)her practical approach to sewing without a fancy studio or lots of tools and 2)inspiration. If you are planning to take my 1 skirt, 3 ways class, then I highly recommend this book!
What about you ladies that sew all the time? What books do you recommend to a new seamstress????
