Item description for Sew Easy: The Essential Guide for Getting Started by Linda Lee...
This is the single kit that first-time sewers must have, the brainchild of professional designer, author, and TV personality Linda Lee. It's convenient, well-organized, and a welcome gift for anyone.
It's unlike anything else on the market: an attractive and compact magnetized case that holds a 64-page booklet brimming with illustrations, diagrams, and techniques in one sleeve, while another contains single project cards to pull out and work on. That's why Sew Easy makes sewing...so easy! From the tools to use to the terms to know, from measuring and marking to pressing the fabric, from sewing a basic seam to embellishing with appliqu, it not only teaches sewing skills but helps newcomers to think creatively. Each of the simple, fabulous, and whimsically illustrated projects introduces a new technique to practice; make it first according to directions, then do it again your way. Change the size, make up your own detail, choose some outrageous fabric, or decorate it with a personalized touch. Soon, you'll be stitching like a professional!

Reviews - What do customers think about Sew Easy: The Essential Guide for Getting Started?
No subtance. Dec 16, 2006
I ordered this, and it is just basically just a mini sewing dictionary. It gives terms and defines them.. and recommends what you should have in a sewing box... no real details on how to sew. The only nice part is the project cards that it comes with. If you are wanting to LEARN to sew and learn different techniques... this isn't what you should get. Disapointing.
Great attractive projects Jan 15, 2006
First, I have not purchased this product, yet. However, as an accomplished seamstress I think this would be a great, fun gift for someone interested in starting to sew for himself or herself. Over the years, so many of my friends have expressed interest in having me teach them. Because of time schedules, this has never happened, but I am thinking of giving out this book to them to illustrate how easy it would be for them to start. Especially since nowadays there are so many decent beginner sewing machines under the $100 price mark.
