Are you baffled by sewing terminology, different tools and materials, or patterns in general? I answer all your questions in the authoritative guide to over 300 sewing terms. This easy-to-use sewing primer isn’t sorted alphabetically but by categories that make sense.
How can you tell the difference between a weave and a grain? What’s a muslin and why should you use it? My advice covers the "what" and the "why" of everything from buttonhole thread to flat felled seams. The fully illustrated guide explains each term with words and visuals for reader-friendly understanding.
And because it ships from me, the author, I will sign your copy prior to shipping! Yay!

Some kind editorial reviews:
Avoid feeling overwhelmed anytime you encounter unfamiliar sewing terminology with this handy guide to even the most complicated of sewing speak. (Burda Style Magazine, February 2015)
I looked up "Stay Stitching." I have been trying to figure that one out for a while! The explanation in the book was great…the author actually told me why one uses "Stay Stitching." Can't wait to read more. Funny how one can make quilts for years…but when it comes to garment sewing sometimes nothing makes sense. (The Applique Society Newsletter, 12/9/14)
