This is another win for DK publishing.
Although it is not a Singer Sewing Refernce Book ( To me they are the top book out there) this comes as a good close second. With the pictures of the techniques and the added projects (Singer Sewing Reference dosen't have those) to help you cemment the technique in your mind.
