Book Review Corner

It's time for Book Review Corner again!
Today, we have two titles from the lovely and talented Anna Maria Horner -
Seams to Me and Handmade Beginnings.
Seams to Me is a manual for beginning sewing, and Anna has some great chapters about choosing the correct fabric, finding the right tools, laying out patterns and beginning sewing techniques.

This book has a nice mix of whimsical and practical projects.
I would love to make this art piece, what fun!
There are clothes for youngsters, clothes for grown-ups, and fun accessories.
Handmade Beginnings is full of more wonderful patterns, many of which are for the pampering of the prospective and new mother.
Anna also has included patterns for clothes and accessories for the new baby and even some projects for elder siblings so they feel included in all of the family excitement!

Both of these books have an envelope of patterns in the back, and they are spiral-bound, so they stay open while you're working, a big plus for me.

If you have used any good, or not so good, sewing or crafting books lately, drop us a note in the comments. We're always looking for more books to highlight in our Book Review Corner!

Happy Sewing,
The Treadlettes
