Follow a group of beginner sewers who came together with author, Shea Henderson, to learn to use their sewing machines. The result of their journey is this learn-to-sew bible covering everything from the anatomy of a sewing machine to fabrics, essential tools and basic sewing techniques. Benefit from authentic advice from Shea’s 12 students as they learned all about sewing machine feet, interfacings, stabilizers, threads, different fabrics and even zippers.
Designed to progress over one year, there are 12 projects, advancing complete beginners one step at a time by building on the skills learned from the prior project. Feeling ambitious? Each project also includes ‘extra credit’ - a more advanced expression of the same technique. The best part is that each of these lessons results in a finished project you actually want to use! Packed with hundreds of detailed how-to photographs, this award-winning book removes the mystery around your sewing machine. Whether sewing in a group as Shea’s students did or on your own, this is the only guide to sewing you will need.
