School of Sewing Book

The School of Sewing by Shea Henderson allows you to follow in the footsteps of a group of beginners who shared one goal - to learn to use their sewing machines.  It begins with easy to follow instructions for using a sewing machine and advice on buying fabric and tools, and progresses through 12 projects which include a pillowcase, tote bag, zippered pouch and a quilt.  Here is a sample of what you will learn: types of machines and how to shop for the machine of your dreams; fabric selection and color theory; essential sewing supplies; how to troubleshoot problems; professional finishing techniques; sewing skills including inserting zippers, making ruffles, buttonholes and pleats, sewing curves and machine quilting!  This is a book for everyone.  It is a great reference guide with excellent photographs that you will want to keep close to your sewing table.
