    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.
