Crafter Gift Guide: my favorite sewing book edition

With the holidays fast approaching, I decided to start a gift guide series. With each post I will offer my humble crafting opinion (not an expert one I might add). This edition is dedicated to my favorite sewing books. There are SO many but these top my list:

The Sewing Bible by Ruth Singer
I LOVE this book. Awesome.
Perfect for a new sewer or
a master seamstress for reference.
A must have.

Sew What Bags by Lexie Barnes
Reviewed here. Still one of my hands down faves.

Sewing Green by Betz White
This one is great for repurposing.
Betz is so clever and this is well written.
Seams to Me by Anna Maria Horner

What sewing books top your list?

Hi- I'm Mique (as in Mickey). I started 30days as an idea file a few years ago. After three years and hundreds of ideas, I now realize that I'll never check them all off my list. When I'm not creating, I love spending time with family and friends and long drives, especially if they end at the beach.
