WOW! Learned many new things! I’ve collected dozens…alright, a couple hundred… sewing books of various topics, and thought I’d run across just about anything that could be said about a sewing machine or how to do various sewing tasks in a more efficient way. This book kept my attention all the way through, as there are plenty of tips I’d not heard about, spread all the way through it! It’s presented in a very clear fashion, along with exceptional photographs, so that a newbie can understand it. It also keeps more experienced sewers engaged. I’d recommend this book for everyone’s collection, no matter their skill level, and it’d make a super gift for anyone in your life who likes to sew.This same author has a new book on sergers that I see will be out next month, and I can’t wait! Just bought a new serger recently and it makes me feel like a total novice. I’m sure if that book is anywhere near the same quality of Charlene Phillips last two books, it’ll never leave my sewing table. I still…

The Sewing Machine Classromm This book is totally awesome. It walks you through the ins and out of the what’s what in the beginner’s world of sewing machines. But don’t let that stop the more advanced sewing person. If you have had questions about needle to thread or needle to fabric this book will help you thru those questions. How about that tension question or how to sew on a fringe or maybe what foot to use then this is the book. I am very pleased with what the book shows and how it explains it. If you should purchase this book I would hope that you would find it as helpful as I have.

A must have book! This is a fantastic book for beginning sewers & a good refresher for others. The author goes through basic concepts & explains threads, fabrics, types of machine feet, when to use interfacing , & on & on. I LOVE this book. It is worth every penny & I know I will refer to it alot in the future.
