It's Wednesday, so that means it's Book Nook time! Today we're talking about The Sewing Bible by Ruth Singer!
Ruth is a fabulous textile designer and also teaches workshops, so she knows what she's writing about! The book starts off with practical techniques which go from setting up a sewing space to mastering invisble zippers. Then Ruth dives into decorative techniques, like ruffles, scalloped edges and American smocking, and she finishes with a section on incorporating the techniques. There are cute projects included throughout the book, and lots of photos. I found the interfacing guide in the back of the book to be very helpful as well. My goal is to finally master the invisible zipper, and I think this book will help me get there!
