SFF-Stash Books Me & My Sewing Machine Book Giveaway!!


"Stash Books is an imprint of C&T Publishing located in the San Francisco Bay Area. Stash Books launched in Spring 2010 in response to the growing general sewing trend and as an effort to keep C&T Publishing all quilting all the time. For more information about C&T Publishing’s 25 year history in the quilting world, you can click here to find out more.


Stash Books publish illustrated titles that help our readers use fabric to create a beautiful lifestyle for their family, friends, and themselves. Our staff is passionate about making sure our instructions are accurate, our designs are inspirational and our authors are people our readers want to know and learn from. We also love to make things. A lot!"

So, if you're wondering how a Sewing book is tied into the Spring Fashion Fling-the answer is easy. I love having the ability to sew my own clothes, or even just making a small change or addition to a skirt I have bought. Several times I have seen a skirt style I really liked, and gone about designing one (or more) like it. I did the same thing with a cute little jumper for my younger sisters quite a few years ago. We saw an adorable bib jumper, and when I couldn't find a pattern for it, I made one myself :)
Then, of course, I often add lace or a ruffle to my skirts. I have also added a contrasting fabric to the neckline of a few of my dresses. Being able to sew gives so much freedom and ability when creating a wardrobe! So, after having said all that-Stash Books is giving a copy of Me and My Sewing Machine to one of my readers. This book looks really neat, and helpful for both beginners and experienced seamstresses!
"Complete instructions for tried and true techniques, from the basic set-up to the finishing touches


  • Learn everything you need to know (but might be afraid to ask) to sew exactly what you want
  • Includes an illustrated guide to how a sewing machine works with troubleshooting tips
  • Advice on the accessories you need to achieve the results you want
  • 7 chic projects to make for yourself and your home
This classy and clever book has everything a beginner needs, plus it’s an essential reference guide for even the most experienced sewers. Learn how to make different kinds of seams, hems, fasteners and bindings, as well as when and why to use each kind. Find your perfect signature style with finishing techniques like ruffles, pleats, ribbons and appliqué."
