Fine Machine Sewing: Easy Ways to Get the Look of Hand Finishing and Embellishing by Carol Ahles
Fine Machine Sewing (first published in 1996) was the first ever comprehensive guide to producing details that look handsewn, whilst actually being produced with ease on a sewing machine. Recently fully revised and updated, this classic text on hand-sewn details with a sewing machine incorporates all the new techniques and stitches that the new machines allow. Even better:- you can use these techniques on your own home-made garment, or to enhance the appearance of one you have shop bought. This reference book can be used by sewers of all skill levels for mastering classic finishing and embellishing techniques and for learning how to get the most out of any sewing machine. * Brand new material: a chapter on heirloom sewing techniques, plus new home decorating projects. * Brand new colour photography - the original edition was substantially black and white.
