Book Review- Threads Sewing Guide

If you sew a lot, than you probably know why good sewing guides are necessary. A sewing guide provides a reference for how some things are done.Threads Magazine is consistently one of the best sewing magazines, so you would expect them to write a good sewing book.
This guide is a good one. It's a weighty volume with lots of photos and instruction for good techniques. From Accordion pleats to Zippers, it's got you covered in those details which turn homemade into handmade. With my daughter just now learning to sew, a current sewing guide was an essential addition to our books.
The diagrams and photographs are very clear, where photos are used, they have contrasting fabrics and thread colors to make construction methods easy to see. The diagrams are easy to follow and the text is clear and understandable.
There is a detailed index in the back for looking up specific techniques, so if you need to learn how to make welted pockets or buttonholes, or you want to look at hemming options, you can find the information quickly.
I recommend this book for beginners who want to take their sewing to the next level and to more advanced sewers who need a good reference for more involved techniques.
You can get this directly from the publisher, Taunton Press You can get more information about my review policy here.
