You’ve heard me rave about
Whipstitch. It’s the fun fabric store I like to shop. And you’ve probably heard me talk about Deborah, the owner of Whipstitch, who just came out with a book, Stitch by Stitch. She is wonderful. And the book is amazing.
Stitch by Stitch: Learning to Sew, One Project at a Time is a book for seamstress at any level, especially beginners. Deborah did a great job talking about the basics of sewing – supplies, sewing machine parts, how tos, types of fabrics, types of stitches and so much more. Then the rest of the book is chapters after chapters of sewing projects with a CD of printable patterns. And it really is learning to sew one project at a time. The sewing projects get harder as you go to the later chapters of the book. And Deborah does a fabulous job teaching and explaining new concepts in each chapter. Even if you are an experienced seamstress, this book is great for referencing and the projects in the latter part of the book is more advanced.
And then there’s Whipstitch. It’s not just a store. It’s a fabric and sewing boutique. It’s all the fun and gorgeous fabric that you can’t find at craft stores. And even if you are not in the Atlanta area, where Whipstitch is located, you can still shop all their fabrics online on their
online store. They also provide a variety of classes for children, teens and adults. If you do stop by the boutique, you will have to say hello to Deborah and all the other lovely ladies who work there. They will answer all your sewing questions and provide the best customer service on the planet.
