This book is one of my sewing bibles (along with the Betzina's first of this collection, "Fabric Savvy".) I don't start any project except minor mending without checking the book for suggestions on needle size, pressor foot info,proper threadl and general technique suggestions. When I follow her recommendations my garments come together much more easily and with much more professional looking results in the details.
