At the Top of My Stack

Untitled I've shared in the past about the sewing books that I use and browse through often, so I wanted to update my list. I'd decided last month that when agave ordered his textbooks for this semester (he started yesterday! Eek!), I would order a new book that I think will be a huge help- Fabrics A to Z by Dana Willard, so I did. I've not spent much time in it yet, but I just know that it'll be a great resource to add to the others. Untitled Are there any sewing/crafting books on your wish list? I've been ogling this one, Reinvention, but alas, will need to wait until my book buying budget is replenished.


  1. I would looove to get that Simple Sewing book! I have Weekend Sewing, & now that the craft fair is over, I might actually have time to sew some more things from it. ;)

  2. I just got my first sewing machine two weeks ago. Thoughts for an absolute new beginner? Books you would reccomend?

    1. The martha Stewart encyclopedia of fabrics & sewing FOR SURE! Then sign up to take a beginner's class at a local fabric store. :)

  3. I only have one sewing book: Stitch by Stitch by Robyn Moses. It is really helpful. Of the ones you have listed, which one do you use the most?

  4. Well, I actually think I use my Martha Stewart book the most- it was in the car when I photographed these! with the exception of Fabrics A to Z, these are mostly project books with tips thrown in. So, yeah. The MS book has projects in it, but it's also an encyclopedia with a lot of information in it.


I'm so glad you're here!
