Whether you learned your way around a sewing machine at an early age, or just started dabbling with a needle and thread recently, this sweeping manual from creator extraordinaire Martha Stewart will both elevate and inspire your fabric crafting. Structured for education first and instruction second, the book dedicates its primary section to helping readers master the five key techniques of fabric crafts — sewing, appliqué, embroidery, quilting, and dyeing and printing. The latter portion of the book features 150 projects, each clever, innovative, and full of that signature Martha Stewart style. By the time you’ve reached the end of its pages, you will be as comfortable sewing Roman shades as producing lovely, detailed Japanese embroidered linens. (Plus, for those interested in fabric crafts but who aren’t confident using a needle and thread just yet, look for the thoughtful no-sew projects!)
• Designed for sewers and crafters of all skill levels, this manual features in-depth technique education, then 150 projects in which to practice (and flaunt) your new abilities. • 400 pages • 150 craft projects
