I've been waiting for this book for about ten days. $25 Australian even before the dollar ht parity with the US dollar. Her site had it for the same price, autographed, but it would have cost more than that again for postage. So I went my usual route via the the Book Depository. besides signing really only adds more than interest value if the book were to be kept in mint condition and never used.
There are two sections, the theory and the practical and an envelope of patterns in the back.
I haven't really looked through it properly, more done a skim read of it. The first part seems to have some useful information about machines, sewing , cutting out, seams etc. To me it's written in a rather twee, schmaltzy tone, but then I'm sensitive to that sort of thing. Others may find it acceptable. I can live with it, but it's not my style at all. Perhaps I've read too many heavy academic tomes!
I don't take part in swaps usually but have seen about pincushion swaps. This picture shows something I think would work well for such things. It's called a pincushion caddy. Interesting, I think.
