Get Set, Sew! The Beginner’s sewing Machine Book; by Jane Bull
Genre: Sewing, DIY
Published: July 7 2015 by DK
This is a beautiful, colorful, well-designed step-by-step guide to beginner’s sewing machine projects. The projects are really cute (I made a few and want to make more, and I’m an advanced sewer!). One of the things I like most about it is the patterns themselves are so unique. I’ve seen a lot of beginner sewing books but these patterns are great! Another thing I like about the patterns is that they are customizable. They are perfect as they are, but they also lend themselves to inspiration and little changes to make your project unique and different.
The book’s layout is very good. It has the basics in the beginning, very good photos, very clear step-by-steps, and hints throughout to guide newbies along. The color scheme, fonts, etc are great. The only problem I have is there are a few pages—not all of them, just some—that are just so busy it’s almost overwhelming to look at. Too much stuff, either information or cute little pictures, makes some of the pages look cluttered.
All in all I’m very happy with Get Set, Sew! and recommend it to every beginner sewer, child or adult!
