INTRODUCTION from NANCY
My fi rst job after college was teaching sewing at a Minnesota Fabrics store in Chicago. Setting up twenty folding chairs in the middle of the store fi fteen minutes prior to the demonstration constituted my fi rst classroom. Since then, I’ve taught in almost every venue possible, with the TV studio being my most recognized classroom. During the past thirty-fi ve years, I’ve tweaked and personalized many of the common techniques.

Many of these methods have been published in other books of mine, but they’ve never been gathered together in an A-to-Z reference. My hope is that you’ll enjoy this quick reference and that these techniques will fi ne-tune your sewing and quilting skills.
It is US$10. To get this book send email: textileebooks@gmail.com
