Use this informative book to hone your skills in the art of sewing.

A Beginner's Guide to Sewing by Hand and Machine is a complete sewing course for first-timers. It starts by telling you which pieces of sewing kit you need to buy, explaining which fabrics to use, and how to use paper patterns. The second part of the book is a structured course of 12 workshops, which build from the most basic hand-sewing techniques through to more advanced dressmaking skills. At the end of each workshop, there is also a step-by-step project, which reinforces the skills mastered in the workshop, allowing you to recognize your progress as you go. The projects range from simple hand-embroidered pillows to a lined throw, and from a shirred sundress to an organdie pleated skirt. Techniques include embroidery, patchwork, quilting, dressmaking, and curtain-making, and there are useful tips and shortcuts throughout the book to help you become a sewing expert!
