“We adore our sewing machines; they are reliable, dependable and always there for us, whether we want to run up a pair of curtains, take up a skirt, or make handcrafted gifts.” Marion Elliot

No matter what the make or model, your sewing machine is a potential creative playground. Just by changing the foot, experimenting with materials, or doodling with the needle, you’ll discover that you can do much more than just stitch! Get the Most from your Sewing Machine is full of different techniques for you to try as well as projects ranging from quilts and curtains to gifts and greeting cards.

A mixture of feature spreads that are filled with tips, ideas, tricks, inspiration and creative projects are included and presented in an easy ‘dip into’ format with a funky design that provides a wealth of must know bite-size information. You will find ideas for upcycling garments and accessories as well as information on online sewing groups, blogs, markets and stitch + bitch get-togethers!

ANOTHER fabulous looking book. I not only need to get the most from my machine, I need to anything from my machine. I guess I should really fix the broken needle first.
