The book is packed with hints and tips for successful quilting and will walk you through every aspect of your sewing journey. The book begins with a section on Sewing Room Essentials: a peek in Debbie's sewing room, a guide to all the tools and materials you might need, a labelled diagram of a sewing machine, and in-depth sections covering various types of wadding/batting and interfacing, fabrics and threads. The book contains a comprehensive trouble-shooting section to reassure and guide beginner sewists when they encounter problems, along with a glossary to debunk any unfamiliar terms.
The second section of the book, Sewing Room Techniques, covers all the skills you need to know, such as pressing, chain piecing, English paper piecing, different quilting styles and binding, and explains them step by step. The book features 10 projects that build up in difficulty, incorporating the techniques you learn as you go. Start simple with a place mat and then build up yours skills as you create an English paper-pieced tote, a baby quilt and a clutch bag.
This is the ideal book for the beginner sewist looking for in-depth and helpful guidance, or for the more experienced sewist looking to brush up on their skills.
