Library Journal Review

Betzina (No Time To Sew, LJ 12/96) is the author of the Power Sewing series and hostess of HGTVs Sew Perfect. Fabric Savvy is a guidebook to 85 different fabrics available to the home sewer, from African mudcloth to wool melton. Each fabric is given a two-page spread that includes information on recommended thread and needles, stitch length, presser foot, finishing, seams, marking, interfacing, cutting, types of hems, topstitching, and closures as well as basic information about the fabric and the types of garments for which it is suitable. Recommended for general purchase by public libraries. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
