Book Review: Martha Stewart’s Encyclopedia of Sewing and Fabric Crafts

Martha Stewart has two great instruction encyclopedias:

Martha Stewart’s Encyclopedia of Crafts: An A-to-Z Guide with Detailed Instructions and Endless Inspiration

and

Martha Stewart’s Encyclopedia of Sewing and Fabric Crafts: Basic Techniques for Sewing, Applique, Embroidery, Quilting, Dyeing, and Printing, plus 150 Inspired Projects from A to Z

Both are available in the Oak Park Public Library as well as in stores and online.

These texts are extremely useful–clear directions, useful photos and fantastic glossaries will make them indispensable to you.  What’s even better is that there is a CD that contains patterns and templates.  (Many other sewing guides include patterns that must be photocopied and often enlarged which is often veery tricky!)

Do you have a sewing text you find useful?  Please post a reply and share!
