A Sewing Course in a Book If you have just decided that you want to learn how to sew, this book has been designed for you. Learning to sew can be simultaneously frustrating and rewarding, so you want a book that will start slowly, build your confidence and help you avoid common problems. Designed as a thorough sewing course, How To Start Sewing will walk you through the entire sewing process, from your first hand sewing stitches to your first complete garment. You don't even need to have a sewing machine to start learning. Just like having a sewing teacher in your own home or studio, let us show you how to choose and use your first sewing machine, troubleshoot your way through common sewing issues and build your sewing confidence. Go easy on your budget by buying new equipment and materials only as you need it, then put your new supplies and skills to use in hands-on exercises. Don't let the large size of this book intimidate you; everything is explained in straightforward language with practical examples. No prior experience required. The Perfect Reference Book For the more experienced sewer, How To Start Sewing is designed as the perfect reference book. Forget trawling multiple books and videos to decipher sewing instructions, sometimes you just want a book on your studio shelf that you know you can trust. Use our Table of Contents and Index to get right to the technique that you need. We have focused on the most versatile techniques and explained them step by step with detailed drawings. Use our troubleshooting guides to master your sewing machine, improve your stitch quality and solve recurring construction issues to raise your sewing skills to the next level. Practical Sewing Exercises with Patterns to Match It can be frustrating trying to learn how to sew a detail when your pattern doesn't match the instructions. To solve this common problem we have included a whole library of small sewing patterns. Trace off the patterns, cut them out in fabric and follow the step-by-step exercises to sew seams, darts, pockets, zippers, vents, and plackets. This process will help you to create a reference folder full of your favourite techniques. Next time you forget how to sew the lining for an invisible zipper, or how to adjust the tension on your overlocker, you will have your reference sample there to remind you. And next time you want to swap or modify a detail on a sewing pattern, you will have the pattern library to use as a handy reference. Professional Techniques for Superior Results Whether you are studying fashion design, have your own label or sew for yourself at home, we know that you want to master techniques that are of a professional standard. We have specially selected the details that are the most versatile in womenswear and menswear collections so that you can mix and match them endlessly across your own garment patterns. Or apply the details in this book to your favourite commercial sewing pattern. We will only teach you the details and methods that are used to create high-end ready-to-wear garments. With practice, you will be able to consistently create garments of a superior quality. Designed for Different Types of Sewers If you are a perfectionist, this book will suit your pragmatic desire to know everything about the how and why of sewing and will help you build your skills and knowledge in a specific order. Learn to analyse garments and diagnose construction problems like a professional and fine-tune your techniques. Or if you prefer to make mistakes first, and then ask questions later then we are here for you too. Just use our troubleshooting guides to tell you why you keep breaking needles and tangling your thread so you can quickly solve your issues and plough through your first projects. The sooner you start making mistakes, the sooner we can help you fix them.

It Can Happen To Any Family

“I left her room and went to bed. I lay next to David, but we did not speak. There were no words to describe the pain we were in. I thought about the day that had begun so pleasurably and ended so painfully. Even so, I thanked God for the blessings in my life, as I did every night. I asked Him to watch over Candice and provide her with the help she needed. We had not been able to give her what she required. Nothing had worked as we had hoped. I am glad I didn’t know then how tragically her story—and ours—would end. What had happened to Candice, and where did it all begin?” This is the story of an ordinary family struggling with an extraordinary problem: a special child whose journey was hijacked by teenage drug use. Candice Doucette was a beautiful and well-loved young girl with many friends and talents and supportive parents. What happened to her and her family can happen to any family. In this memoir, her mother candidly shares her experience, in hopes that other parents will find this book a resource as they strive to answer the recurring question, “What can we do?” And now, nine years later, Cynthia writes an epilogue to give the reader insight into her life today. How through her enduring loss of her daughter, she has finally found what’s most important: her peace. Cynthia Doucette’s compelling memoir shares such deep, intense, emotional family struggles and triumphs. The connection I felt with Cynthia and her daughter, Candice was unreal. It felt as though Candice’s spirit was with me as I read her life story. Candice spoke through the words of her mother. I could feel Candice’s happiness, her depression, her pain, and her anger. In this story of her tragic death and the wonderful family she left behind, I found myself becoming a part of the Doucette family, as I can relate to the emotional roller coasters they’ve endured. Cynthia’s outlook on her family’s ups and downs is so real and by far one of the most amazing stories I’ve ever read. Cynthia is an inspirational author, a role model, a woman who had enough faith, love and strength to put her family’s story out for the world. She sacrificed her and her family’s privacy to help others in need of answers and guidance in times of crisis. This book clearly proves that this can happen to any family. -Rebecca Batchelder-
