KIRKUS REVIEW

That sewing can be a social, inexpensive and individualistic occupation becomes evident from the first pages of this efficient primer. One can have a very good time sewing. To add to the interest there is information about how sewing began in the transition periods when man started to wear clothes and hooked them together with bone needles and thongs. Following are descriptions of modern tools- threads, materials, sewing machine etc.- directions for making a simple mat and skirt, doing embroidery, working with plain fabrics and ideas for extra touches.
