Sewing Machine Secrets by Nicole Vasbinder

Knowing which machine is right for you is a great first step to learning how to sew, but knowing how to use that machine inside-out is crucial in order to get the best out of it. Sewing Machine Secrets is an indispensable resource for sewers at all levels, showing the reader how to choose, use, and maintain their sewing machine, while mastering sewing techniques and learning handy tips along the way.

From sewing a simple hem to appliqué and quilting, not only can you make a sewing machine do everything it’s supposed to, but you can also—where relevant—learn how to “fool” it into doing techniques that most people think only high-end machines can achieve. Without being brand specific, Sewing Machine Secrets discusses the functionality of each machine type and its accessories, explaining what you should look out for when choosing

a machine, how to care for it, and also—most importantly—how each feature and foot can be used and manipulated to help you improve your sewing skills.

  • Features the most comprehensive listing and study of presser feet ever published
  • Not brand or model specific
  • Includes a wide range of step-by-step techniques for mastering sewing techniques
