SEW U from indie fashion darling Wendy Mullin is the first truly cool sewing guide for creative girls and budding designers everywhere. It comes complete with three full Simplicity patterns produced exclusively for this book (a fifteen-dollar retail value).

Sewing is being reclaimed by a new generation. one that is bored by poor quality and homogeneous design. Downtown fashion designer Wendy Mullin, of Built by Wendy, teaches the creatively inclined and ultrastylish how to make the perfect skirt, shirt, and pants. She gives you everything you need to know to begin sewing and provides step-by-step instructions and patterns directly from her studio.

Her ideas and advice will inspire you to rethink and revamp all your clothes to make fabulous custom fashions.

So next time someone asks who designed your favorite new skirt, go ahead, tell them - you did!

Machine Embroidery on Difficult Materials by Deborah Jones. Embroider leathers, silks, synthetics and chiffons successfully every time!

With the expert advice in Machine Embroidery on Difficult Materials, you can embroider even the most challenging materials with consistently beautiful results.

Deborah Jones has embroidered it all, from slippery synthetic sheers to the thickest velvet. In this authoritative reference, she unlocks the secrets to embroidering on 18 of the most tempting yet challenging materials:
  • Unstable fabrics - lightweight knits, stretch knits, bulky knits, gauze
  • Densely woven fabrics - lightweight nylon, coarse nylon, polyester satin and acetate, silk charmeuse
  • Pile and napped fabrics - velvet, terry, fleece, faux fur
  • Sheers - natural-fiber and synthetic
  • "Unfabrics" - vinyl, faux suede, leather
This complete reference puts everything you need at your fingertips:
  • Which needles, stabilizers, marking and hooping methods work best for each fabric
  • Clear, empowering explanations, so you'll know why these challenging fabrics behave (and misbehave) the way they do
  • Bonus CD-ROM with 14 embroidery designs in 38 fabric-specific versions and 12 file formats!
