As you can see, my sewing book shelf is well endowed. (I have more tucked away in other places around the house too!) My collection of sewing books grew considerably when I started to write my own book. I needed to do some research and work out what I liked/didn't like in a sewing book and see how others went about their books. So books started steadily streaming into the sewing room and, as with all of my "sewing collections" I can't stop adding to it!!!
With little ones in tow, I do most of my book shopping online...I don't have as much time as I would like to stand in the aisles of a bookstore flicking through pages - usually I've got children in hand or under careful, watchful eye making sure they don't escape/destroy anything or make a spectacle of us all!!!
Inspired by one of my Facebook followers I'm going to start a regular (but not committing to weekly!) "BOOK SHELF" feature on the blog - each Book Shelf post will give you a detailed look into a sewing book from my ever growing collection with lots of information about the kinds of projects the book holds and a little review on the book to help you make purchases that you will be happy with!
Coolies? I'll be back later in the week with my first review! In the meantime...if you've got a book that you are particularly interested in (whether in my photographs here or not) let me know and I'll pop those ones at the beginning of the list :)
