Left-Handed Stitchery

BY Sally Cowan


For the 15 percent of the population who usually are “left” out of stitching instruction manuals, this book is a wish come true! Sally Cowan, a left-handed professional dressmaker, writes sympathetically for left-handed sewists. Forty varieties of stitches (including straight, back, caught, blanket, buttonhole, chain, knotted, cross, couching, satin and laid filling stitches) are all illustrated by 96 clear drawings of progressive steps. This soft cover book includes 64 pages with illustrations by Kurt Loftus.
