So, Why Sew? Because it is So Savvy!
The Quarto Group has two new books out that we think really nail all the reasons to pick up sewing in 2018. The Quarto Group’s motto could be a variation on our own – to make and sell great books that entertain, educate and enrich the lives of adults and children around the world.
We grew up with Mom doing her thing at the Singer, and we remember sewing our first hem back in Home Economics class, so we know what we’re talking about when we say the following two new book releases are worth checking out if you’re either thinking about taking up this time honored skill, or you are a tried and true sewist.
Here are two new releases that our savvy readers should peruse before leaping into the creative world of sewing.
In Sewing Machine Magic, Steffani Lincecum shares 30-plus years of experience in sewing while unpacking the sometimes complex world of sewing machines. She explains everything from the logistics of managing thread, to how to achieve the proper stitch formation, to how to find and use the correct presser feet for your machine. Need to troubleshoot a variety of common sewing challenges, Steffani to the rescue!
Sewing Knits from Fit to Finish by master sewist and teacher Linda Lee is another goodie. This book will give you everything you need to know about sewing knit fabric – tricky! From choosing patterns, to laying out designs, to sewing and adding embellishments and closures. It’s all here in a step-by-step process!
So, come on savvies! Let’s all get sewing!
