Debbie Shore’s Sewing Room Secrets: Machine Sewing: Top Tips and Techniques for Successful Sewing
In this first book in her new Sewing Room Secrets series, Debbie Shore walks you through every aspect of machine sewing, revealing her top tips and providing in-depth and helpful guidance every step of the way.
Jam-packed with sewing know-how, and with ten gorgeous projects to help you practise what you have learnt, this book will build your confidence and skills in machine sewing – whether you are just starting out on your sewing journey or are an experienced sewer looking to perfect your working methods.
In her characteristically friendly and easy-to-follow style, Debbie begins with a section on sewing room essentials. This is your first peek into Debbie’s sewing room, where she guides you around your sewing machine and explains all the tools and materials you might need, including wadding/batting, interfacing, fabrics and threads. There is also a troubleshooting section to reassure and guide you when you encounter problems.
The second section of the book covers the key techniques you need to know, including inserting zips and piping, using shirring elastic, free-motion embroidery and applique. Debbie’s focus is on craft and home items, but she also includes some dressmaking and quilting tips for those looking to explore other areas.
The ten beautiful projects help you learn the techniques as you progress through the book, beginning with a simple pincushion before moving on to a pillow cover, a tablet case, a drawstring bag, a sewing machine mat and more.
