DescriptionComing from exactly the right publisher (remember "Stitch 'n Bitch" and "Generation T"); this title introduces "S.E.W." is the beginning sewer's bible. A reinvention of the post-war sewing how-to, here is a hold-your-hand guide that marries attitude and instruction, that speaks the language of today's crafters while teaching them everything they need to know from winding a bobbin to sewing a dart to customizing a pattern. Diana Rupp, the author, comes from a long line of crafters, and parlayed her passion into a career as the founder of Make Workshop, a unique DIY school that's been written about in "Elle", "Real Simple", "Time Out", "Vogue Patterns", and more. In "S.E.W", Rupp brings the workshop home: buying the right machine; setting up a space and furnishing it with the right tools; introducing fabrics - manmade vs. natural fibres, woven's vs. knits, colour theory, buying vintage fabric on eBay; the art of laying out a pattern and cutting; and becoming one with your machine, from best posture to seam allowances, buttonholes, zippers, and the finer points of hand-sewing. Then comes the fun: 25 amazing projects, 8 with patterns included, all handled with clear, step-by-step instructions - gingham wrap skirt, gauchos, drawstring pants, silky top, downtown hobo/laptop bag, patchwork throw, dog sweater, unisex boxers, vintage apron, more.

Reviews for S.E.W. Sew Everything Workshop
I've learned soo much from this book!!! by Jett
I'm new to sewing, so I wanted a book that could help me with the basics. This one has a lot of useful info and tips, and the patterns are OK to start with. I also like the spiral bound design and the fact that it comes with pattern sheets. by Pilar Ramirez Tello
