    Gr 3-8-A sequel to Sewing School (Storey, 2010), which focused on hand stitching, this visually appealing
    title carries those skills over to machine sewing. It covers the basics: machine and fabric anatomy and selection,
    supplies needed, project preparation, and safety practices. Readers are guided step-by-step in the creation of 20
    projects, with patterns enclosed in a pocket at the back. The projects have been tested by children within the book's
    targeted age range; are logically arranged, garnering more stars as their complexity increases; and draw on skill sets
    that have been previously covered. Clear, high-quality photographs and concise directions coincide with each step, while
    sidebars contain ideas for personalizing projects with embellishments. One chapter is devoted to correcting mistakes;
    hand-stitching skills needed in finishing up are contained in another. Information on creating a sewing group and a
    useful resource guide are included. Highlighting the many benefits acquired through learning to sew, this volume will
    serve adults as well as children. As a beginner's guide, it is first-rate and even encourages readers to expand their
    repertoire with the inclusion of more challenging techniques such as patchwork, drawstrings, and zippers. It is
    wonderfully designed and an ideal purchase for beginners, though its pattern pocket and spiral binding might not be best
    suited for heavy circulation.-Rebecca Gueorguiev, New York Public Libraryα(c) Copyright 2013. Library Journal. LLC, a
