The Sewing Machine Manual

Your Easy Guide to Machine Stitching

Wendy Gardiner


In this revied and expanded edition, Wendy Gardiner brings you this invaluable guide to getting up and running with a sewing machine. She includes all the basics, including machine anatomy, how to thread up and how to check stitching and tension.

Once you have built up your skills, there are 12 great projects to make, including: a patchwork placemat, a drawstring bag, an appliqu├ęd pillow, a clutch bag, a tablet cover, tab top curtains, a quilted pot holder and a notebook cover. Each project is designed to teach techniques such as sewing seams, adding buttonholes and zips, blind hems, quilting, free-motion embroidery, using an alphabet and making pleats, trims and pockets. There is also a glossary of all the important terms, and an excellent trouble-shooting guide.
