Power Sewing Toolbox Volume 2 is a continuation of the sewing tips and techniques found in Volume 1. These books can be read in any order because each one will help you continue improving and mastering the craft of garment sewing.
When Sandra Betzina decided to put her collection of tips together, she wanted the book to make sense to all levels of sewers and to be very easy to refer to. You can open this book to a tip and have it lay flat for easy reference. The books are written in a very straightforward and clear way with detailed photos and step-by-step instructions. There is a DVD included to better demonstrate the more in-depth techniques.
