Cassandra's Review- What a great way to gift to a loved one! I know it takes time and a lot of work, but the fun and easy to understand books will take your sewing up a notch and even if your a veteran at the craft, this is still going to bring some great new ideas.
It can also be a great time to buy a new sewing machine.
