Do you own a sewing machine but don't know where to start? Feeling daunted by off-putting manuals? This book will change all that. Sewing machine guru and popular author, Wendy Gardiner, has written a friendly guide to getting up and running with a basic sewing machine. She demystifies machine anatomy, threading, and how to check stitching and tension.

As you build up your skills, there are 12 stylish and practical projects to make, including: a patchwork placemat, a drawstring bag, an appliquéd pillow, a clutch bag, a tablet cover, tab-top curtains, a quilted pot holder, and a notebook cover - there is something for everyone. Each project is designed to teach techniques such as sewing seams, adding buttonholes and zips, blind hems, quilting, free-motion embroidery, using an alphabet and making pleats, trims and pockets. There is a glossary of all the important terms, and an excellent troubleshooting guide.
