This should be everyone's first sewing book! A technique based book for the first-time sewist but packed with attractive (not juvenile) projects that everyone will want to make. Designed for individuals to learn from and experienced sewists or shops who want to use this as a teaching tool for their own licensed School of Sewing class. All the basics will be covered with clear instructions from former educator, Shea Henderson. The book is designed to tackle one project a month with each building on the skills learned in the previous lesson. 'Extra Credit' for each project is offered for each of the 12 projects which encourages students to add one more bit of flair to make their project really sing. Fabric store field trip, machine buying tips, and essential school supplies are all included in this modern, sophisticated, beginning sewing book.
