Introductory Sample Chapters Only 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…
