 item info

With its comprehensive information and inspiring designs, this book offers an irresistible combination of sound basic techniques and desirable projects. Based firmly on the belief that a good grounding leads to good results, the information progressively builds up a library of basic sewing techniques.

Everyone who is interested in sewing will welcome the clear illustrated instructions and helpful tips for achieving a good finish. The author discusses the fabrics and equipment that are available as well as how how to sew hems and seams, corners and curves. Even with these very first skills, projects are included - from a simple cloth and napkins to a stylish curtain swag and a stunning garden pavilion - bringing the basic techniques to life and encouraging the rader to get stiching.

All manner of different fastenings are described and explained, from setting in a zip to making individual buttons such as Chinese knots and Dorset buttons. Techniques that embellish the finished work, from frills and fringing to piping and pintucks, are also included, adding a final decorative touch. Fabulous projects complement all the techniues and include cushions fastened with buttons and ties, a waistcoat with Chinese knot buttons and a squab cushion with scalloped edging.

With its illustrated step-by-step instructions, sound coverage of basic techniues and desirable projects to make, this book will be an essential acquisition for all needleworkers.
