The Encyclopedia of Sewing Techniques uses a visual dictionary approach to cover basic sewing techniques, reviewing the tricks and tips of the sewing world through a focus on finished pieces and how they were cut, assembled, or sewed. Chapters discuss all the options in each project, from putting together collars and using facing and bands for a smooth finish to sewing curtains and other home furnishings. The result is an excellent compendium of techniques recommended not just for reference consultation, for but browsing to learn new methods and ideas.
