The Complete Family Sewing Book, published in 1971, is a useful and practical instructional book that "makes sewing fun." It's full of tips, techniques, and short cuts for sewing for the family. Dozens of diagrams, charts and illustrations cover everything from doing wonders with your wardrobe to closures and hand-finishing to sewing swimwear and children's clothes.

It's all packed into a sturdy 3-ring binder that lays flat when opened for easy reference. In excellent condition; there are no pencil marks anywhere, and the book is colorful and upbeat.
