Spiral bound at the top and with a fold-out easel style bottom, this cheerful and informative book will sit right alongside you while you learn to use your machine with confidence.  Not only will it teach you the parts and how to set it up, but also how to sew straight, master different stitches, and even sew in a zipper...painlessly!  But that's not all...

Flip the book over, and there are 15 sweet projects to guide you through using all your new skills.  Because everyone knows, if you don't use new techniques pretty quickly, you don't truly own them.  The projects include a reversible hat, cushions, curtains, a tote bag, a baby quilt, a table runner, and more!

So pull it out of storage, dust it off, and prepare to be amazed just how easy it is to do your own basic sewing by machine!
