Or more specifically, do you google requests for sewing techniques? I'm wondering because I read someone's opinion specifically asking why do we need more beginner sewing books when you can google most beginner sewing techniques. Also, you can take beginning sewing classes on Craftsy or PatternReview. So do you google them ~ sewing techniques?
And while we're on the subject of sewing books - how many of us actually collect them and form our own sewing library? If you do, what kind of books do you collect? Do you think it's time that publishers of sewing books go to the next level and offer more intermediate or advanced sewing books? What techniques would you want to see covered in these books?
In this instance I think I'm kinda lucky that I started to sew before the advent of the internet because I have a collection of sewing books both new, vintage and reference that I have studied and can look to when needed. I do think to turn to them first...just habit. However, when I write a post about something I always include some internet references because "googling" just seems to be the thing these days.
So if you google exactly what do you google? And if you have a sewing library, what is the most important book(s) in your sewing library that you'd recommend to a new collector? Finally, if you've recently started sewing, like in the last 5-7 years, what kind of sewing information are you looking for and how to you want to receive it?
These are my questions of the day. So talk to me people, I'm really interested!
...as always more later!
