Book description

Take the first step to sewing success with Get Started: Sewing, part of a new series of learning guides from DK where nothing is assumed and everything is explained. Each course follows the same structure: start simple and learn the basics, build on what you've learned, and then show off your new skills!

Get Started: Sewing teaches the complete beginner the skills needed to complete over 30 beautiful projects. Start simple with lavender hearts and pin cushions, build on your skills with bunting and tote bags, and then show off with a child's skirt and purses.

With step-by-step pictures and practice projects keep you on the right track, Get Started: Sewing will help you learn your new skill in no time.

More than any other series on the market, DK's Get Started aims to provide the reader with carefully structured learning and a classroom approach to teaching that allows you to build your own course from practical lessons and themed projects.

Each book begins by answering fundamental questions, identifying an essential starter kit of tools and equipment, and explaining how to build a course. The book then divides into subject areas, with key techniques for each area demonstrated through visual glossaries and step-by-steps, followed by graded projects with annotated instructions and an assessment of how to build on achievements.

Let DK be the perfect one-on-one tutor you never had: patient, illuminating, inspiring - always at hand to point you in the right direction so you can achieve your potential.
