On Anna’s recommendation, I purchased a copy of The stitching device Attachment Handbook, which turns out to have been the book I’ve been searching for all my stitching life. Did your stitching device include a box of tiny, weirdly-shaped feet? then you requirement this book. There are remove directions for guides, hemmers, rufflers, binding as well as cording feet, sequin feet, walking feet … as well as on as well as on. If you can screw, bolt, strap or clip it to your stitching machine, I believe this book covers it.
My preferred guideline for judging stitching books is by whether or not they make you want to sew — as well as this book makes me really, truly want to sew. I believe the hemming foot directions alone are going to make my stitching life better.
It’s likewise kindled in me a deep as well as unpleasant longing for something called a “bias cutting guide” — a doodad that clips to the end of your scissors to ensure that you can cut bias tape without all that unpleasant marking. I wants one, I do. Couldn’t turn one up on eBay, though; does anybody have any type of leads?
(Also, if you purchase it from the link above, the author, Charlene Phillips, will indication your copy. That’s always nice!)
