While I think all of the books in the Singer Sewing Reference Library are pretty good and worth owning. I think the “Sewing for the Home” series to be one of the best. I found the beautifuly illustrated, with detailed color photographs of every step of the sewing process for home decor items. I think it’s great for a beginner to achieve good results with home decor projects using the instructions and methods found in this book. If you are interested in DIY home decor sewing, then you should add this book to your sewing library.
I adding this book to my collection of “how to” books, I found useful short-cuts, finishings and detail. The projects are classic; swags, jabots, cornices, padded headboards, pinch pleated drapes, bed skirts, pillows and duvet covers. Anyone can follow the step by step picture instructions and a well worth addition to your sewing library.
