Whether you just bought your first sewing machine or have been
sewing for years, Martha Stewart's Encyclopedia of Sewing and
Fabric Crafts will open your eyes to an irresistible range of
ideas. A comprehensive visual reference, the book covers everything
a home sewer craves: the basics of sewing by hand or machine, along
with five other time-honored crafts techniques, and step-by-step
instructions for more than 150 projects that reflect not only
Martha Stewart's depth of experience and crafting expertise, but
also her singular sense of style.
Encyclopedic in scope, the book features two main parts to help you
brush up on the basics and take your skills to a new level. First,
the Techniques section guides readers through Sewing, Appliqué,
Embroidery, Quilting, Dyeing, and Printing. Following that, the
Projects A to Z section features more than 150 clever ideas
(including many no-sew projects), all illustrated and explained
with the clear, detailed instructions that have become a signature
of Martha Stewart's magazines, books, and television shows.
An enclosed CD includes full-size clothing patterns as well as
templates that can be easily produced on a home printer. Fabric,
thread, and tool glossaries identify the properties, workability,
and best uses of common sewing materials. And, perhaps best of all,
when you need it most, Martha and her talented team of crafts
editors offer you the reassurance that you really can make it
The projects are as delightful as they are imaginative, and include
classic Roman shades, hand-drawn stuffed animals, an easy
upholstered blanket chest, a quilted crib bumper, French
knot-embellished pillowcases and sheets, and Japanese-embroidered
table linens, among many others.With gorgeous color photographs as
well as expert instruction, this handy guide will surely encourage
beginners and keep sewers and crafters of all experience levels
wonderfully busy for many years to come.
