3.0 étoiles sur 5 Introductory Sample Chapters Only 26 juillet 2014

This book is only a few introductory chapters of a larger book written by a television personality in the UK. It's far from being "Everything You Need to Get You Started" beyond the most basic list of sewing supplies. There are numerous references to the "full book" in the Introduction.

Since the author is UK-based, her terminology for some sewing items and techniques could be confusing to a US reader. (What is a "rouleau loop" and where would it be used, for example?)

Most of this short book is taken up with lists and descriptions of what the author considers sewing essentials and tools and useful additions. The length (and total cost) of this list would overwhelm most beginners, and many items could be postponed until the beginner is on firmer ground with her or his new hobby.

Another portion is taken up with how to customize a dressmaker's dummy. Why this is included in a short introductory book aimed at beginners is a puzzle to me; not only is this a high-ticket item and beyond the budget for most beginners, I have to say that I have never found the need for one in my 40 years of sewing. Why not use this book space for information that would be of more use to the new sewer and to better highlight the author's teaching style about sewing techniques?

The remainder of the book covers the basics of using printed tissue patterns and a few hand sewing techniques for hemming.

There is a mention in the Introduction of links to patterns (as an additional purchase, but would these be available for purchase for US readers?) in the "full book" for projects.

There is a technical problem with the Introduction and the chapters of the book dealing with sewing tools and essentials. For some reason the book designers decided to present these sections in a grayed font which is extremely difficult to read on e-ink Kindles since it blends into the background with insufficient contrast. It would be more readable on a Kindle Fire or Kindle app, but it shows that all devices were not considered equally when this book was formatted.

Not recommended. If you are truly interested in learning how to sew, I would suggest looking at the line of Singer or Simplicity sewing books which are all excellent and contain practical projects and techniques well described and illustrated without the possible misunderstandings caused by the UK terminology for beginning sewers in the US.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 Too short to be useful, this piece seems designed as just a teaser ... 4 septembre 2014

Too short to be useful, this piece seems designed as just a teaser for her other books. With that said, it should make us want to buy them.

This makes me want to throw her book, which isn't a good thing considering the only thing that I can throw is my Kindle. I actually learned more about sewing as a 4-H kid from one demonstration than I learned in this "book". It's a waste of time, and leads me to believe her other books will be an equal waste of time.

Not sufficient contrast to read comfortably on the Paperwhite. I assume that these words are in some color other than black which might be fine on a different Kindle.
There is not much to this. I understand that this is a "short" but it does NOT cover everything you need to get you started.
I saw nothing in this to prompt me to download any more of this book or series or whatever it is.

This has a full list of things you will want for your sewing room, along with illustration of hand stitches, and customizing a dressmaker's dummy. Everything is a brief generality, such as "General Dressmaking Tips." These are followed with the instruction to see her full book on whatever the topic is, or to buy her full length book. What she's written is fine, but the book as an entirety is not that helpful.

Although I am an experienced sewer, I really enjoyed reading this booklet. I love Mary Martin in the British sewing bee series. She is informative and easy to follow. I wish UK amazon would supply kindle books to us down under, unfortunately all their kindle books are only available for english consumption. No such problem with their physical books. Makes one wonder why
