The sewing magazine "Threads" shares its wisdom in "Threads Sewing Guide", a compilation of its best information about sewing. The book is intended for users of all sewing levels. It covers supplies, fabrics, fitting techniques and sewing pointers, from creating a seam to hand-stitching a couture garment. It also contains sections about quick fixes and stain removal, useful information even for people who aren't interested in making their own clothes. "-The Modesto Bee"
