As you know I love taking out any of the sewing books that are available at the library especially ones about techniques.
Being self taught I love to see if there is something that I can do better or easier. This sewing book by Ruth Sleight-Johnson is a great book with a look at the basics of sewing along with a few projects to sew at the end.
Great book for beginners!
