"What Hastings promises in her title is truly delivered--an encyclopedia of tricks of the trade for the more experienced sewer....The dozens of illustrated ideas will prove to be time-savers. Most of the techniques involve dressmaking and tailoring details that will make the difference between a professional and an amateur job. Two chapters, in particular, were written for stitchers with more enthusiasm than experience: one on the uses of different machine 'feet,' and the second featuring the top 10 notions to incorporate in the sewing kit."--Booklist.
