When I'm having a bad day at work, I either head for the fabric store or the bookstore. Believe it or not, I can do less damage in the bookstore than I can at the fabric store, so that's where I went Thursday lunchtime.
I have a pretty large Borders near me (Time Warner Centre/Columbus Circle) which has a very decent craft section. So this time while I looking at the new titles, I spot this one:
The Sewing Answer Book (Solutions to Every Problem You'll Ever Face - Answers to Every Question You'll Ever Ask). I flipped through it and thought that this was a marvelous little book for sewists. The author is Barbara Weiland Talbert ~ I have a few of her earlier books ~ and it has great chapters like, "Needles and Thead", "Stitching Basics", "Working with Patterns" etc.
What really drew my eye to this book were the questions on the back of the book. "How do I select the best needle size for my project?" "How do I use my body measurements to choose a pattern?" "How do I finish the facing around the zipper on the inside of the garment?" And it gives the page numbers underneath the question, so you can flip right there. Kewl, right? So I bought two of them...one for a special friend...and one to give away!
