Publisher Comments:

Sewing is a skill that's both fun and functional, and there's no better way toand#160;get startedand#160;than with jolly Miss Patch! She learns how to thread a needle, cut patterns, and sew a fine seam by hand. With the help of Miss Patch, and the book's many diagrams and amusing drawings, beginning sewists can learn to make a pillow, a bag, a patchwork quilt, an apron, and even simple clothes. Originally published in 1969, this is a timeless introduction to the pleasures of sewing.
