Dana’s book is an amazing resource that most definitely NEEDS to be on your Sew Essential list! I won’t say too much today, because I did a review of it in May of this year. Suffice to say, there is an amazing amount of information in this book. It even includes how to do a “burn test” so you can find out what the fibre content of your fabric is!

Also, if you have never read Dana Willard’s blog, MADE, you should really check it out. She covers everything from sewing to baking to crafting – all with bits of life in between. Her photos are refreshing, bright and colourful – something for bloggers (especially me!) to aspire to and use for inspiration!

Of course, you can get her book from Amazon, or a myriad of other places I’m sure. Check out your local book store (if you still have one, sadly) or quilt shop and you may find it there as well.

Do you have a favorite sewing book that you reference on a regular basis?

Continuing on… Come back tomorrow for Sew Essential #6! And – as usual this week – enter the contest to win a fat quarter bundle – can’t hurt. You might just win!
