Sewing is enjoying renewed popularity as more and more young people are realizing that with a few basic stitching techniques they can make a whole range of items for a fraction of the price that they cost to buy, Learn to Sew is part of a series that explains basic needlecraft skills and then puts those skills into practice. Essential techniques are explained with clear step-bystepphotographs and instructions and these are then interspersed with attractive projects so that key skills are gradually built up and reinforced. Starting with simple seams, and then moving on to buttonholes, piping, simple pleats and adding zips, all the essential stitching techniques are covered so that the reader is able to create a whole range of items, from simple cushion covers to tabtop curtains to a child's apron. In addition there is a comprehensive section at the front of the book covering essential information about fabrics and sewing equipment. Throughout the book there are alteration techniques, showing you how to make simple changes such as shortening hems or moving buttons.ABOVE, top row: packet of sewing machine needles; middle row, from left: polyester bold thread, cotton thread, polyester tacking thread, silk thread, polyester thread; bottom row, from left: pins with pearl heads, pins with small metal heads.
