From Postcard Reviews, Jan 2019:
What Debbie Shore does with her fabulous new book Sewing Room Secrets is take the sewist back to basics. If you are a novice stitcher this book is perfect for you, and if you have been sewing for what seems like an age then it is a brilliant guide to reminding you of some of the things you might have forgotten. With ten projects included, Bags, Pillow covers, and a gorgeous Toaster cover, each project gives you the chance to use the techniques given and end up with a fabulous and professional looking usable item.
Debbie Shore also makes suggestions on how to organize your sewing space to make it more user friendly and practical. Advice on what you need to start your sewing journey is included , a full guide on which sewing machine to buy and what the different parts are and what they do. and even what feet is best for your sewing project.
Tips and techniques are explained in a simple language that everyone understands. I love how Debbie doesn’t bombard us with ‘sewing speak’ that some professionals use. What I love about this book is that everything is covered. Zips, Applique and so much more. Even shirring is explained and demonstrated, this is something I have never done but do plan on having a go. This book is brilliant. It is beautifully presented and the photography gives a visual guide that makes everything come to life in perfect fashion.
