Learn how to sew with step-by-step instructions from Jane Bull.
This beautifully designed book is full of colour and detailed photo tutorial instructions to make a variety of projects with your sewing machine.
Get Set, Sew begins by introducing you to your sewing machine and teaches you how the stitches work, how to thread your machine and different ways to fill the bobbin.
Next you begin to sew – with step-by-step instructions guiding you to arrange and line up your fabric, how to guide the fabric properly and how to remove it at the end of the row.
You also learn more about different stitches, how to sew corners and are introduced to possible sewing problems and different tips for solving them.
In the Sewing Essentials section you will find the other tools you will need to make the projects and you will learn about Fabrics; right sides and wrong sides and trims and things.
The Helpful Skills section teaches you hand sewing, how to join fabric, how to make paper templates and then how to make a Soft Heart Project.
