Elementary Sewing Skills, from Carolyn Denham of Merchant & Mills is a lovely little sewing book. If you've every sewn with a Merchant & Mills pattern, you know they are of the highest quality: well drafted with clever construction and top notch instructions. They are truly a treat to work with! And this book is no exception to that rule.
It's a thoughtful reference book focusing on solid, basic construction methods. I think it would be equally useful for brand new garment sewists OR an experienced sewing nerd. It would make an excellent gift.
Come in and take look! We also have copies of the equally excellent Workbook in stock, which is full of great patterns for this transitional season we're so gleefully entering.
