Dana Willard is the creator of the popular blog MADE. Her patterns and designs have been featured in sewing publications such as "Craft Hope: Handmade Crafts for a Cause "and "Sew "magazine, as well as on blogs and zines such as Craft, Odeedoh, Sewfearless, and Refashion. She lives in Texas. Visit her website at dana-made-it.com.
Not only does she give info on fabric, but she also includes descriptions about notions and pattern symbols. I think this is a great reference book for anybody who sews.
I have read through this book twice, and have learned a lot about fabrics, even seeing where I went wrong with past sewing disasters. It has made an excellent quick reference. It is small enough to keep by my machines. It has saved me time setting up my machines and testing on scraps, knowing what thread to use, needle, stitch, or special considerations with the fabric I am sewing. I highly recommend this book.
The book is broken into categories such as Wovens, Knits, and Specialties. It is further narrowed to specifics such as flannel, gauze, jersey, satin, etc. It gives a thorough description of the fabric, characteristics, properties (weave, weight, etc.), care (wash, dry clean, shrinkage), and even how to handle the fabric and which needle, thread, and stitch length work best. Also included are sewing tips where the author thought necessary.
There is a Notions and Tools section that explains the different presser feet, threads, fasteners, etc.
I had been looking for a fabric guide book for quite a while but couldn't find one that addressed the specific information helpful to use while shopping online. This book is truly the only one I need. It will make a great gift for my sewing friends!
